We are super excited to be running our Summer Riding Intensives again this summer! This is our fourth year offering our summer programs to students ages 6-12.
We are offering three different weeks this program this summer.
Our goal is not only to have students experience the joy and freedom of riding which can be very empowering, but also to explore relationship dynamics between horse and rider, and to instill a sense of responsibility for their care. Also, there is the inevitable frustration that will arise with learning new skills with animals that do indeed need to be partnered with and not controlled. In our experience, all of this translates to a week of tremendous growth and excitement.
In the mornings students will have the opportunity to ride and to learn about horses and horsemanship through hands on learning experiences. Activities include grooming, tacking up, the daily care of horses and barn management. In the afternoons, there will be a special horse related activity, such as trail rides, bareback riding, games on horseback, bathing a horse, etc.
For this program no previous riding experience is necessary; just a need to want to show up, have fun and be with ponies!
Groups are maxed out at 12 children. Please contact us to reserve your child's spot today!
We are happy to answer any additional questions. We also offer a special discount if you sign up with a friend or sign up two children!
