Special education classes as well as neuro-typical classes from local school districts take advantage of horseback riding facility. Some school schedule several lessons; other schools prefer to come once, as a field trip. Length of the riding session is dependent on the number of children and their ability.
Riding lessons are designed for the student's ability. We have staff to lead riders who have never ridden before or have special needs that necessitate a leader.
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.
In addition to horseback riding, students may also learn about horses. How horses are similar to them, how they see, what they eat, or other horse related topics. All activities are hands-on.
Schools may also sign up for our S.T.E.M., Leadership and Horses, or Day at the Farm sessions. These sessions are two-hours long.
