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.
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. But students are more as welcome to keep taking their lessons during the summer.
But your commitment has to be made for this full time of the regular program
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.
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
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, 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.
