Special Education class riding at Pretty Pony Pastures

School Groups

Special education classes from our local school districts take advantage of our facility. Some school schedule lessons for four to six weeks in the fall and/or spring. Other schools prefer to come once, as a field trip for their students.

For the schools that come for a set of lessons, we can integrate classroom learning into the riding lessons. We play games on the horses that reinforced colors, shapes, words, and other concepts.

The horseback riding also helps to develop core muscles, fine and gross motor skills, as well as communication both with the horse and volunteer staff.

Riding classes lasts approximately forty-five minutes. See the schedule on the right for the days and times of the classes.

Class size never exceeds four riders. We have a play room and an outdoor play area to entertain the children who are not riding.
