Pony Preschool $40/Half hour
Our pony preschool program is designed for children 2-5. An adult must be available to learn how to groom, lead, saddle the horse and to be able to help during the riding portion of the lesson. Younger riders often need someone walking besides the horse to assist with balance and for the safety of the rider. Lessons are 1/2 hour and will include grooming. The adult will groom one side while the student and an instructor groom the other. The adult will assist in the remainder of the saddling process in order to speed things up a bit. The remainder of the time will be spent on riding learning balance, gaining confidence on the back of a horse and as time goes on how to hold reins, steer, stop and how to make the horse move forward. When the rider becomes skilled enough there is a seamless transition into our "regular" half hour privates which prepare the rider to transition into a group later on.
