Get your Child Riding!!

Your kid loves horses and wants to ride, how can we help you?

1) Lessons! This is the best way to get the hands on time and the close eye of an instructor so your child really move forward with their passion.

2) Volunteering: last year we had a program where kids could come and help us run the barn one evening a week for free! We plan on doing this again this year.  Learning to care for horses gives more hands on time and builds character and good horsemanship.

3) Youth Adventure Program: Our intensive immersion summer camp! More information online.

4) Hidden Valley 4-H and Comstock Girl Scouts Camp: both of these camps contract us for the horse portion of their programming.
