Horse Riding Lesson Programs for Charter Home School, and Public School 'Track' Students. Charter schools are 'best of both worlds' for some students

Correct horse riding is a great way to get in shape.  It enhances both physical fitness and flexibility. Our quiet dependable school horses are great for of any age who may be afraid to ride.  

Has your child always dreamed of learning to ride?  

Now is the time! Equine education with hands on care & riding through horse ownership, lessons, clinics and independent study.

 We offer many different riding disciplines for our Charter students.

Horseback riding lessons help teach the responsibilities of horse ownership.  Riding lessons give one the opportunity to see if  the child really likes it and if he/she has the time to make horses a commitment in his life.  Kathleen can also provide an opportunity to lease a horse or to board a horse under instructor supervision.  This gives the potential horse owner (and his horse) the maximum opportunity for success!

A variety of educational experiences in addition to riding lessons are available: 

Adults are encouraged to watch other lessons, horse training and other activities on the grounds. 

  • Horse Camps 
  • Activities might include lessons, trail riding, observing training and other lessons, learning how to lunge a horse, asking questions,  
  •  What could be more fun? and educational too!!!
