PONY PALS is our beginner horsemanship program. Students learn general horse care, grooming and tack. Pony Pals is an introduction to horse body language, leading, mounting and dismounting, as well as, basic communication with the horse while on the ground and in the saddle. 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.
