Spring Lessons: Every Tuesday for 6 weeks starting Tuesday April 17th (weather permitting)

These are adaptive riding lessons for students with disabilities.
Cost: $180 (scholarships are available to defray costs)
Each student recieves 1 hour of lessons weekly at the same time each week
These are group sessions- maximum of 4 students per hour
We work towards goals set by student, parents and instructors
Things we work on are (within abilities of students):
Proper care of the horses, brushing before and after,
ground work- leading horses and learning how to stop them and drive them around the arena from the ground at a walk,
riding and learning all skills that are encompassed- many students start out with a person leading their horse from the ground, if balance or confidence in riding is of any concern we have sidewalkers as well untill student becomes more confident and abilities are strengthened
