Equine based Homeschool Program

Horses helping children
Horseback riding is fun

In September 2017, Pony Gang Equestrian Services in Camden started to offer a Homeschool Program to Homeschool parents that is based on a completely different concept than our regular horseback riding program.

 

With this special program, we are able to offer you as Homeschool parents in the Camden, Columbia and Sumter area  not only a place for your child/children to take horseback riding lessons, we are opening the door to so much more for your children. 

 

Pony Gang has started this program with YOUR horse loving child and youth in mind, because children learn easier and better when you find something they love and build an educational program around it. Our program will cover many of the important academic disciplines and combines them with critical life-skills. 

Horses will give you confidence

 

Physical education (horseback riding, groundwork, and conditioning for riding) are clearly the biggest part of the Pony Gang Homeschool program, but also the science of horseback riding and horses themselves will be part of it in our classroom lesson and as longer your child will attend our program as more school subjects will we touch during classroom time*. For example history, social studies, literature, math and creative writing, and art.  All this areas will be related to horses and horseback riding. We will also focus on life-skills and character development.

 

The program will be taught from August - May and will be on break during the Summer time.  The program will be broken down in 2 blocks.  

  • Fall/Winter block running from August - January
  • Winter/Spring block from January - May

You have the opportunity to sign up for the full program for a reduced tuition price or you can sign up for the program by the block for regular tuition price. The tuition will be charged as an automated monthly tuition payment.

 

If students want to continue after the first year program (it is our goal for them not only to learn but most importantly to enjoy it), we will keep the same class going forward in the next program season. 

 

We need a minimum of 4 children of the same age range to start a new group with a max. of 6 children per class.

Horseback riding lessons

Homeschool Riding

The Equine based Homeschool program for horse loving boys and girls in the age of 7 - 15 years interested in riding lessons based on Hunter / Jumper / English and Western riding will contain the following

  • 30 minute class room lecture 
  • 60-75 minutes hands-on-horse lesson (getting horses from pasture, grooming, tacking up, riding lesson, untack and after care of horses). 

Children will get placed in classes according to age and the riding part will be based on riding ability. 

 

Total Beginner rider will share a horse for the beginning of the program. This has two effects a) they learn how to handle the horse from the ground (leading & control) b) the riders can concentrate on themselves (like they would do on the lunge line in our regular beginner lessons), learn the correct seat, balance and body control. 

Confident beginners to advanced riders will receive their own horse and advance their riding skills.
