What to expect of a pony experience?

For ages 3-6 years old we offer this as an approach to the horse world. It is about 15 minutes of time with the animal. Whether it is spent on or off the horse. 

During that time the child will help groom, and pat the pony that will be tacked and ready to ride. If comfortable, and confident we will get him on and do a few loops around the riding arena or the farm trail at trainers discretion. Upon completion of the few laps around the arena we will return to the grooming area where the child will be able to give their pony a treat and say good bye. 

What if I want them to ride longer?

Unfortunately as much as we want your child to be capable of taking a full riding lesson, we must wait until their bodies develop, and their attention span is greater. During the pony ride the riding time is up to the trainers discretion. We cannot push the child to ride. We believe in encouraging them, but always when they want to do it.

What do they need to wear for their pony ride?

They need to wear closed to shoes, long pants, and ideally tall socks. 

Should I tip the help? 

Tips are encouraged but never expected. 

Can I get a package of pony rides?

You are encouraged to purchase a pre-paid package when you plan on coming weekly, this will help ensure maintain the same time/ day weekly for your pony and helper.  The packages are to be used within the purchased month, and do not carry over to the following month.
