Toddler classes are set up as an introduction to riding for children ages 3 -5. During these classes children and their parent bond over grooming and handling ponies. The child will progress at their own pace and will begin riding when the comfort level of both parent and child allow.
Classes are set up in two parts:
- Involves grooming, proper handling of a pony, learning the parts of the horse and tack and
- Stretching exercises, balance games and building confidence while on horseback
- Only the child will be mounted. The parent/guardian will handle the pony. Closed shoes must be warn by child and parent/guardian.
Parents do need to plan to take an active role in this class.
