BARN BUDDIES is our horsemanship program for those students who are more experienced and have progressed from Pony Pals. This program continues the development of basic skills related to horse care and barn management, unmounted, as well as mounted activities. Students develop self- awareness and improved communication and problem-solving skills with their peers, as well as their horses. Classes will be organized by skill level and age.
Horsemanship Programs at Misty Meadows Equine Learning Center offer students the opportunity to experience horses and nature while learning horse management and riding skills. Weekly 1.5-hour lessons are divided into two 45-minute segments, EAL (equine assisted learning) and Horsemanship. Eight students divide into two groups of four and alternate between the two segments. Led by qualified instructors and experienced volunteers, two six-week sessions are offered during the fall season.
Our Horsemanship Programs are designed for students age 7 and older.
