Pony Pals is our horsemanship for younger students. Students learn general horse care including grooming and how to tack up a horse. Pony Pals focuses on learning body language, leading, mounting and dismounting, and basic, mounted and unmounted, horse communication skills.
Class begins with a 15-minute check in complete with healthy snacks, themed discussions and sharing. At Misty, we believe in the power of the group and, in keeping with our mission, we provide time and space to nurture connections. Each week we chose a theme to discuss and embody our skill building activities. Examples of weekly themes include: relationship, boundaries, leadership, self-reflection, acceptance. The horses become the co-facilitators of these weekly themes as they give their honest and unbiased feedback in the sessions.
