Young Rider Program
at Valley Ridge Farm
*Please note the change regarding the schedule for our new program “Young Riders”.
Beginning in October, Valley Ridge Farm has created a special program for the Pony Pal graduates. It’s called the “Young Riders”. This horsemanship series will increase your children’s confidence, building upon the Pony Pal foundation giving them knowledge and experience to become more independent and skilled at horse ground work and mounted horse work. Children will be divided into smaller groups so they can receive more individual attention. The dates for this special six (6) day Young Riders horsemanship series are: October 19, November 16, 23, 30, and December 7, 14, 2019. There will be an alternating of mounted horse work Saturdays and horse ground work Saturdays. Please note the following:
Mounted horse work days will be October 19th, November 23rd, and December 7th. Your child will be assigned a lesson time by Michele. The times assigned will be on a first come first served basis with each child riding for 45 minutes. The times are as follows: 1:00-1:45, 2:00-2:45, or 3:00-3:45.
November 16th, November 30th, and December 14th will be horse ground work days with different stations your child will attend. On horse ground work days each child will be attending for 1 ½ hours between the hours of 1:00-3:00 p.m.
*If your child would like to attend this special Young Rider program but won’t able to attend all six (6), you may bring them on the above dates your child is available. They will certainly still learn a great deal. Cost for the Young Riders special program is $250.00 per child for all six (6) Saturdays or $50.00 per child if you choose the daily rate.
