RideRockRanch provides basic horsemanship skills to children ages 5-17. Lessons focus on haltering, grooming, leading, tacking and riding horses (or ponies). Each package includes four, one hour lessons. These lessons may be grouped with 1-3 other individuals, depending on past experiences at Rock Ranch. The primary focus of the beginning class is to teach safety, respect, communication, patience, independence and confidence with horses. A secondary focus for all classes is to enhance the student's academic and life skills, physical and psychological abilities, social skills and faith under the direction of qualified personnel and volunteers. All of these skills will be learned while having fun and enjoying the art of horsemanship!
