Day of Horseplay
Does your child beg to spend more time at the barn around the horses? Then Day of Horseplay was created with them in mind! This weekly educational horsemanship day is a great opportunity to introduce your child to horses or to further their equine knowledge.
Children are engrossed with all aspects of horse care, from barn chores to animal husbandry. This is a great chance for them to experience a slice of life on a horse farm. After all, there is so much more to great horsemanship than simply riding – and this is a great place for youngsters to learn about every aspect of the horse.
Thursdays, June 19-August 28 , 1-4 p.m. (No class the week of July 4)
All children ages 5 and up are welcome!
Cost: $25 for each class, or 4 classes for $80
For more advanced equestrians, there is the Horsing Around program, which builds off of the knowledge gained in the Day of Horseplay. This educational program is great for all ages, from kids who have advanced beyond Day of Horseplay to adults looking to learn more about horses. Horsing Around covers a range of topics that are meant to instill confidence and skills handling horses in many different situations, along with some of the responsibilities that come with owning a horse farm.
Some things that may be covered during Horsing Around are: how to set up a jump course; proper striding; gaits and foot fall; equine musculature and skeleton structure; teeth and dental care; and how to find and monitor equine vital signs.
Thursdays, June 19-August 28, 5:30-7:30 p.m. (No class the week of July 4)
