Pony Pals & Barn Buddies deliver a unique perspective on the horse-human relationship. Through groundwork and riding, students learn the language of horses along with the way in which a prey animal thinks and reacts. From these experiences, students develop self-awareness, improved communication and problem-solving skills. Students also learn general horse care, grooming and tack. Students gain a solid foundation of horsemanship to continue their riding education, as well as skills that can be helpful in all aspects of life. All classes are age-appropriate and based on experience level. 

Girl Power is ideal for girls age 7-14 and teaches empowerment skills through unmounted horse activities. Students experience a safe, fun and challenging environment to learn more about themselves and their relationship with others and the world around them. Weekly themes highlight life skills such as: asserting healthy boundaries, managing obstacles and distractions, effective communication, team building and leadership.

Registration ends on June 10, 2018.  Once we receive all registration forms we will determine class lists based on experience and number of registrations received.
