Acres Away's Summer Riding Program is being offered weekly from June until September. Children will ride twice daily in small groups or partners according to riding abilities. All riding and on-the-ground curriculum is built around each level of riding skills (if any) that a child may already have.
Campers are taught English and Western styles of riding as well as horse driving. Riding will take place in the ring, fields, and arenas. Students are taught how to steer and use their whole bodies while riding a horse—they don't ride around endlessly in a circle! Children will play games on horseback and ride patterns, obstacle courses, and more.
Safety is the number-one priority, and Acres Away has knowledgable instructors on site. The horses are safe and quiet teachers for children learning how to ride. Children will learn how to take care of horses from feeding to leading to bathing and everything else they need to know.
