Every summer, we offer Summer Horsemanship Sessions (SHS), beginning in June, and consisting of 10 1-week sessions, however, due to COVID-19, this summer we will be offering five 2-week Summer Horsemanship Sessions. Our horsemanship sessions run from 9:00am to 12:00pm, Monday through Friday. Riders will spend time caring for their horse or pony (assigned at the start) and will complete a variety of tasks ranging from cleaning stalls to feeding and grooming. They will also participate in a group riding lesson based upon their riding ability, and finish off the day with a fun and engaging horsemanship activity. SHS offer riders (ages 6+) from different levels the opportunity to gain hands on experience with horses and riders. This is a great way for beginner riders to learn more about horses and for more experiences riders to further their skills and techniques. Due to COVID-19, each session will be limited to a maximum of 4 riders to prioritize safety. Smaller groups allows for more hands-on experience and more riding time tailored to each rider's level. Join us for a wonderful experience this summer filled with horses, friendships, fun, and more! We hope to see you at Harlequin this summer!
