Ivey Ranch Park is offering the chance to be with horses in a variety of ways this summer. Learn safety, handling, grooming, tacking and riding. Additional instruction in ground-training, vaulting, humane education, feeding, basic veterinary care, housing, and daily care of horses is also part of each week.
Enrollment is limited to 21 children a week and the children are divided into age and ability appropriate groups – typically: 7-10, 11-13, & 14-17. The curriculum consists of a rotation through horseback riding, vaulting, ground training, and humane education (which includes anatomy, feeding, and basic vet care). There is a lunch break from 12-1PM (children must bring a bag lunch) and everyone participates in chores from 4-5PM. Please have your child bring snacks for breaks they will have throughout the day.
