Children as young as 4 are welcome to join our riding program. We teach our students the fundamentals of horsemanship. We teach students how to groom their horse and work around them on the ground and in the saddle. Lessons for 4 and 5 year olds are 30 minutes for $45 (weekdays only).

Please note...while we occassionally take our enrolled riders on trail rides and to horse shows, we are not a trail ride facility and do not offer trail rides to the public.
