Pony rides are the perfect opportunity to introduce children to a love of horses. We welcome children from 3 years old up to join us for afternoons on the farm. Children are taught how to approach and interact with ponies. They learn how to mount and dismount and are led on ponies in supervised walks around the field. Our pony ride horses are retired show and lesson ponies who have years of experience with beginner riders. We welcome all levels of beginners including children who have no prior horse experience. Advance reservations are not required to join us.
Pony Rides are offered in July and August, Friday & Saturday afternoons from 3-5PM. Please contact us for additional details.
The riding school introduces equestrians to the sport. Our school ponies are primarily retired show ponies; however, a couple of the ponies have been specifically trained to safely teach the beginner. The youngest riders 3-5 years are taught in a morning pony camp where they are led on the pony, groom and handle the pony, and play in the farm environment. At six years and older, children are given private lessons until they are ready to ride in a group. We strongly believe in group lessons, as the riders are given more riding time and friendships among the riders develop. As the beginner rider is achieving riding skills, he/she also learns to handle the pony on the ground. We encourage horsemanship at every level of the riding experience.
