In January 2018, we 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 not only a place for your child/children to take
horseback riding lessons, we are opening the door to so much more.
We 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 a big part of the program, but also science, social studies, literature, math and creative writing, and art. But we will also focus on life-skills and character development.
The program will be taught from September - May and will be on break during the Summer. Each block will be 8-weeks long, with one lesson’s day each week. There will be a 30-45 minute class room lecture along with a 60-90 minutes hands-on-horse lesson (getting horses from pasture, grooming, tacking up, 30-45 minute riding lesson, untack and after care of horses). Children will get placed in classes according to age and ability. Riders of all levels and ages 8-15 are welcome to join.
If students want to continue after the initial 8 weeks (it is our goal for them not only to learn but most importantly to enjoy it), we will keep the same class going forward.
We need a minimum of 3 children of the same age range to start a new group.
