Requirements of all riders

SEI certified helmet

Smooth soled boots

Jeans or English riding breeches

Short Stirrups

Children 2-6 years old

n the Short Stirrup lessons the student will be introduced to a pony that fits his/her size and body style by a talented instructor. Together they will work as a team and explore horsemanship in a fun and safe environment. 

Short Stirrups lessons are offered Monday -Thursday 

Cost: $40 per half hour private lesson

*Each student must maintain a one lesson per week to participate in the program

As this is a private lesson your child will have the complete attention of the instructor to guide, coach and mentor as they learn and enjoy the pony together.

We use a building block system of instruction. Each new concept taught corresponds to the previous block of instruction to maximize learning. The instructor will teach the rider how to approach the pony correctly, brush the pony to prepare for saddling, saddle the pony correctly, mount and sit on the the pony with balance and confidence and then - the riding starts.

Once the rider is mobile and on the go, the instructor will maintain the riders balance and prep the rider for holding the reins and teach proper steering techniques and stopping.

As these riders become confident and capable of riding their pony unassisted, are able to brush their pony properly and can attempt to bridle they are ready to graduate to our Group lessons.
