Developing true horsemanship requires spending lots of time at the barn—not just a weekly riding lessons–to learn everything possible about horses and their care.
If your child has little or no horse-related experience, we strongly recommend signing up for Pony Pals, a fun 4-hour introductory hands-on learning session in which horse safety and anatomy, tack, barn care, feeding, grooming, and, of course, riding, are explained. For ages 6+ without parent. Children must be able to follow instructions. Hard-soled shoes/boots and long pants are required. Please see your instructor or contact us for more details, current pricing and schedule, and registration. Please bring a brown-bag lunch.
Next Session: Sunday, November 2, 2014, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Each summer HPF holds weekly camps catering too beginners through intermediate riders ages 6 and up. Contact us for dates and availability.
