Since 1983, Pony Tales has offered riding lessons, ponies for birthday parties, and camps. They have miniatures, ponies and horses of varying sizes, known for their good manners and years of experience, perfect for beginning riders.

The head instructor and owner, Kaye Harris, has been riding since 1973 under professional trainers. Kids' learning is her passion, not just riding, but how it applies to life. She loves to teach beginners their basics. At camp, your child will:

•learn safety around the ponies and horses and explore true "horsemanship" and "horse sense"

•learn to walk, groom and feed ponies and horses

•have riding lessons daily, learning how to handle and ride a horse or pony picked just for them according to their size, not one too big for them

•enjoy fun games and crafts when not busy at the barn! 

Your kids will come home telling you about all the good stuff they learned at Pony Tales camp!
