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 online classroom lesson and as longer your child will attend our program as more school subjects will we touch during classroom sessions. 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.

 

 

Because of the lessons being outside of our prime riding time we are able to offer you this classes for a reduced price 

  $ 160.00 a month*

 

 

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 2 children to start a new group with a max. of 4 children per class.


What will our class all include?


The Equine based Homeschool program for horse loving boys and girls in the age of 7 - 16 years interested in riding lessons based on Hunter / Jumper / English and Western riding will contain the following

  • A guarantee of a spot in the same lessons slot (time and day) every week 
  • One monthly Pony Gang Club - Horsemanship group lesson on Saturday's at 10:00 am (see 2022 calendar)**
  • Quarterly Goal meeting
  • Quarterly  video evaluation of rider
  • Quarterly Level Program testing with Awards
  • Access to our learning platform 

Children will get placed in classes 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, will go on the lunge line and learn trotting, posting and controlling the speed and gait of the horse through their seat and leg aids.  

 

Advanced riders will receive their own horse and advance their riding skills.
