SUMMER PROGRAMS

Our inclusive summer Learning Programs bring together children ages 5-13 with and without disabilities in unique lessons designed to promote tolerance, acceptance and fun through equine-related activities. 

 

Riders can choose from one of our unique specialty programs or our inclusive horseback riding group, Learning with “NEIGH”bors.  Students will participate in daily horseback riding lessons, arts and crafts and horsemanship activities along with activities designed for each specialized session. Team building activities include games, barn chores and other activities that build new friendships.

Horse Powered Reading Program

Horse Fit for Moms

July 31 - August 2, 2019

Why can’t moms go to "camp" too?  Re-awaken your horse-crazy girl for three days.  “Campers” will groom and tack up their horse for a riding lesson, do yoga both on and off the horse, trail ride, and learn horsemanship. After riding, horse baths and horse care, then barn chores to burn those calories and work those muscles are planned.  Did you know that riding a horse at a walk can burn up to 176 calories, grooming burns 525 calories and mucking a stall burns 550 calories an hour? (Please note there is a weight limit for riding)
