Pony Programs

Introduce your young horse enthusiast to the real thing. Our drop-in programs (Little Equestrians, Pony Rides, and Cuties at the Corrals) or 2-session classes (Mini Manes and Pony Tails) are a great way to teach them about horse safety/awareness, horsemanship, and riding, at a young age.

Upcoming Drop-in Programs

Little Equestrians
Little Equestrians is the perfect bridge from pony programs to horseback riding lessons! This 30-minute, private pony-riding lesson firms up the basics of safe— and fun—riding with more attention to details between the rider, instructor, and the pony. Please note: 125-pound weight limit.

Pony Rides
Hand-led pony rides are available for the young horse enthusiast! Walk along with your child as they enjoy the ride. Please note: 125-pound weight limit.

Cuties at the Corrals
This 45-minute program is designed for kids under the age of 6 to come out to meet and love on our horses in a safe, crowd-free environment. This class is capped at 8 kids plus their adult(s).

If your child is over the age of 3 and would like to try out a ride, sign up for our pony rides directly after this!
