Year Round Youth Riding Program
Highwind Farm hosts a year round riding program
for ages 5 & up.
The program runs during July and August and on holiday weekends and over holiday, winter and spring
breaks, with the children grouped according to age. Students learn the
basic fundamentals of caring for horses, grooming, saddling and basic
horsemanship. We tailor our instruction to the level of the riding
groups. The children also enjoy an educational & fun visit from a local farrier (blacksmith), and Veterinarian.
All groups are taught by Highwind Farm's professional
riding instructors who also have helpers
on hand. Our horses and ponies
selected and trained for beginner riders. The
large indoor ring provides a perfect place for rainy days and cold
winter afternoons, as well. And we have a climate controlled lounge for
“non-horse” activities. We have other creature comforts such as
restrooms (no port-a-pots here). Everything is done to assure the safety
and comfort of the children. And we keep the focus on fun!
Space is limited,
so please call to register in advance!
