At Pony Paddock, we specialize in teaching children and adults the basics of horsemanship and a balanced seat.

It was once said, “It takes a village to raise a child.” At Pony Paddock, we want to be part of your child’s village. Horseback riding can be a great way to learn responsibility, consideration for others, how to set goals, prioritize, and communicate effectively. Horseback riding also encourages positive self-esteem, physical fitness, and body awareness. Horseback riding can be a lifelong hobby that relieves stress and helps maintain focus. It is a reward and a special hobby with benefits only a true horseman can know.

Lessons are based on individual needs, strengths, and weaknesses. Each child progresses at their own rate. We set realistic goals based on each student’s abilities and budget.

When a child starts lessons depends on the child’s coordination and attention span. The most common age to begin riding lessons is five years old. However, we are happy to give pony rides to any young horse enthusiast.

All students begin riding in individual lessons. Students must stay in individual lessons until they are able to tack up their pony and control their pony at a walk and a trot, at which time the student has the option to go into a group lesson. Groups are established based on the rider’s ability.

All riders MUST wear approved helmets and must have a signed Release Form on file with the office.
