Private Lessons

Ages 3 1/2 - 14

The Pony Tales riding and horsemanship program is geared toward beginners.  We believe good basics, in the beginning, are the key to better riding in later years.  We start ALL riders in private lessons for this reason.  Lessons also include safety around horses and ponies,  grooming, ground skills, and insights into how the horses and ponies think.  

Try an Orientation Lesson for $40 to see if we are right for you!  Lessons are by weekly appointment only, anytime from 9 am – 7 pm, Monday - Friday. We will occasionally schedule lessons on the weekend.

Holiday Camps

Ages 5-12

The Pony Tales Holiday Camps include the above and more, like crafts and games.  According to your child's school holiday schedule, we offer these by the day or multiple days as needed.
