Gathering around the PONYSITTERS Corral has long been a popular past time as children come together to watch, learn and have the opportunity to be part of LIVE demonstrations and INTERACTIVE classes with professional veterinarians, farriers, equine bodyworkers, clinicians and legendary horse people.
Your child will love our Wild West Scavenger and Treasure Hunts, Pony Piñata Parties, Western Woodworking Projects, Equine Trivia Show Down, History with Horses, Cowboy/Cowgirl Crafting, Picnics with the ponies, Old Town Photographing, Calf Roping, authentic, Frontier Day games and country cook-outs.
Physical activity with horses and horseback riding has been proven to lower stress levels, improve concentration, focus, learning, memory, problem solving skills and build confidence.
Participants have daily, hands-on lessons and independent study time with the horses and ponies. SUMMER PONYSITTERS INCLUDES THE LEASE OF THEIR 'OWN' HORSE/PONY!
We welcome children of all school ages to our Summer PONYSITTERS Horse Club. We have found that the peer to peer mentorship that occurs from mixed age groups benefits everyone. Children who are on the cusp of school age are considered for registration on a case by case basis and as space and staffing allows. Our Summer Horse Program sells out VERY quickly.
Ages 4-15 years accepted

Our summer PONYSITTERS club ends with our annual TRAIL MASTER CHALLENGE! Children show off their horsemanship skills as parents cheer for their favorite cowboy or cowgirl. Participants start with saddling up on their trusty steed to test their horsemanship skills on the ONLY REAL OUTDOOR TRAIL COURSE complete with obstacles, jumps and sensory activity stations over more than 5 manicured acres. The day ends with a pot luck, country style bbq and awards celebration.
