Lessons

 

Lessons will be provided at the level of readiness of the student. We have ponies and horses to accommodate all sizes and ages beginning at 4 years old. We will be teaching from beginner to intermediate in the disciplines of Western Hunter/Jumper, Dressage, & Trail riding.

Our lesson program is well rounded and provides a holistic approach to horses and human relationships. Learning to ride is only part of the horse experience and we believe that to be well rounded and have the full experience of horses that students should also learn caring for the horse, grooming, feeding, ground handling, tacking, etc.

Our facilities include a 60' round pen for the absolute beginner to become comfortable and confident on and around a horse. The next step is our full size arena which provides an opportunity for more active riding skills to be practiced including but not limited to jumps, barrels, poles, obstacles, etc.

The trails on Magic Mountain really are magic and the students love to take advantage of a fun and pleasant ride, sometimes as a trail lesson or after part of a regular lesson. Basic lessons start at $40.

Pony parties are fun for all, children and parents alike! Ride on gentle and sweet spirited horses and ponies or take a ride in the hay wagon. We also play games that are geared to the age of the children. We have a wonderful tack room that is decorated for the horse lover and has tables and chairs where you can enjoy your refreshments...it has a front and back porch with seating and also provides a good vantage point to watch the children have fun and take plenty of pictures.

Parties can be tailored to suit your needs. They can be birthday parties, theme parties, Christmas parties or a party for most any occasion you can think of...you might want to have a party just to have a party! We can also give parties for adults and family get together's. Give us a call and let us help you to plan your next party.

Training

Training the horse is a skill that requires a lot of patience and good judgement. We train using natural horsemanship methods. These methods produce sane, safe and enjoyable horses. It is important that the training lessons are interesting and fun for the horse as well as his prospective rider. There will be parts of the training that the owner can participate in and this will give the owner and horse a better foundation for their future together.

If you want help with your babies then our training will be offered starting at the level of basic baby manners. This means a young horse from weanling age up to the age where it will be old enough to be trained to be ridden. When horses are properly handled and taught the basics at a young age they are much easier to teach when it is time to start riding them.

This saves both time and money in the long run. At the young ages they can learn all about the big scary world and become more emotionally mature. We use fun methods that allow them to become familiar with strange objects, sights and sounds. They will learn to load on a trailer, accept tack, be bathed, stay in a stall and most anything else you can think of. The training will begin in the round pen and progress until the horse is safe to be ridden on the trails, around vehicles dogs, through water, etc.
