If you book a riding party, the children will start the party by getting fitted for riding helmets and using the equicizers to practice mounting, dismounting and handling the reins. Then they will join one of our certified equine instructors for a riding lesson. There is a maximum of 6 riders per instructor so parties with more than 6 children will be divided into 2 groups and each group will ride for 1/2 hour in the indoor arena. Children will be introduced to riding including: mounting and dismounting, steering, and halt. We provide leaders for the horses and all riders stay on lead. This is a walk/trot only program.
