Equine based Homeschool Program

Homeschoolers have fun during their riding lessons here at Pony Gang Equestrian Services in Columbia
Riding lessons are not all about riding here at Pony Gang Equestrian Services Columbia

In September 2017, Pony Gang Equestrian Services started to offer a Homeschool Horseback Riding Program to Homeschool students that is based on the same concept than our regular horseback riding program. 

Our special program which is operating since 2022 from our new location in Hopkins, we are able to offer you as Homeschool parents in the Hopkins, Columbia, Lexington & Sumter area not only a place for their child/children to take horseback riding lessons, we are also opening the doors to educational material regarding horses that you can used for your homeschool studies.  

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  and they will help them make friends here at our new Farm in the Columbia area

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 learning material 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 


  $ 200.00 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 3 children to start a new group with a max. of 4 children per class.


* 1 weekly lesson / 4 lessons a month - lessons will take place
