2021 Riding Programs

REGISTRATIONS for FALL 2021 are NOW OPEN

 

Each week the children get to know the horses and ride. They participate in horse care and farm chores, speech, circle games and more.

 

Our classes are fully outdoors and non-sectarian. Classes and times are designed so that children could attend more than one day or session if desired.

Led by expert trainer Lotte Swauger and Waldorf teacher Sushila Wood.
