Special Programs
2008 Summer Riding and Equine Program

for boys and Girls ages 6 – 14
Children of all levels, from first time riders to experienced horse owners have enjoyed participating in our Summer Riding Program. Together our experienced staff will take time and care to help build your child’s self-confidence and positive attitude while developing their riding skills, knowledge, and sense of responsibility around horses. All students receive a riding lesson every day and participate in the regular care and maintenance of their horse through grooming and tacking, and cleaning the horse’s stall and equipment. All students will learn the basics about horse safety, breeds, colors, markings, parts of the horse, shoeing and feeding. More experienced children will learn about such things as showing, styles of riding, equipment, lameness, lunging, and judging conformation. As opportunities arise, veterinarians or other horse professionals will speak with the students.
