A program designed for students who are able to walk, trot and canter on a horse. This program focuses on the more technical aspects of riding, learning how to set up a jump course and fine tuning riding skills. Each student receives an hour long riding lesson with their instructor.  After riding, students help feed the horses their dinner and close up the barn for the night, allowing them to see the work that goes into owning and caring for a horse.

Students also participate in hands-on learning with all of our well-trained farm and exotic animals such as a kangaroo, miniature cows, miniature horses, pot belly pig, goats, peacocks, emu, and all sorts of other small animals like baby bunnies and guinea pigs.
