Mini Riders

1-6 years old – Tuesday - Thursday 10:15-11:00am – Mommy & Me Program.

Our patient, well-trained and gentle miniature horses are ready to introduce your child to a lifelong love. 

During this 45 minute Mommy & Me class your child will learn how to handle and groom a mini horse.  They will then have the opportunity to take a pony ride around on one of the small mini horses in front of the playground where they will be playing while waiting for their turn to ride. They can also look at the fish in the koi pond or view the exotic animals in the animal pen.  If it rains, they will be riding in the aisleyway. At the end of the class, we ask all children and parents to promptly exit the animal science farm and playground. The farm stand is the only place that is open for the public after the class.
 
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.

Our focus is to teach both the child and parent how to work safely around the animals, while having a fun and positive experience with the pony. 

After feeding and putting the ponies away, your child will have a chance to come into our brand new insulated and heated barn and play with our friendly and well trained small animals (rabbits, guinea pigs, gerbils, birds, ferrets) for an all-around wonderful experience.

Please wear sneakers or boots with long pants.
