Mini Riders

1-5 years old – Tuesday - Thursday 10:15am-11am - Mommy & Me program

Does your youngest want to play with animals and can’t wait for their first pony ride? Sweet Meadow Farm’s patient and well-trained animals are ready to introduce your child to a lifelong love!

At our 45 min morning class for children ages 1-5, parents and children learn how to handle and care for our small animals such as bunnies, guinea pigs and ferrets as well as groom, tack up and be safe around our gentle and kid-sized miniature horses. This unforgettable experience also includes a hand-led pony ride and feeding hay to our variety of barnyard animals including pot belly pigs, miniature horses and cows and baby goats.





Programs take place in our new insulated and heated barn as well as our indoor riding ring, all year round.

The child must be under 3 1/2 ft tall and under 45 lbs. to ride the mini horse, since they are so small. A parent is welcome and encouraged to participate in their child’s one-on-one learning experience. The cost of the class includes one child and one parent only.

Please wear sneakers or boots with long pants. 

Sign up for the whole month on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. Please sign-up in advance, spaces are limited!

Cancellation Policy: Full payment is due at the time of registration. Sweet Meadow Farm does not give credit and/or refunds if participants miss or cancel any of the Programs’ classes.

*Please note: The program does not run during June, July and August due to the Summer Programs. It will begin again the second week of September.
