Pony Club Lessons

Pony Club Lessons Are BACK!!!

Group Lesson Registration is Open!

Our Summer and Fall Lesson information and Registration follows. Group lessons start September 12th, 13th and 15th and run for 12 weeks, excluding Thanksgiving weekend (until December 1st, 5th and 6th). Please note that we do not offer make-up classes unless we need to reschedule due to severe weather, and your 20% deposit is NON refundable.

The Ranch’s Pony Club lessons are designed for children ages 8 and up, and teach children the basics in horsemanship from learning to post at a trot to mastering small jumps.

Our ponies and horses are all well-mannered and well-trained; ready to take your children from introductory to more advanced level english riding.  Lessons are kept very small (a maximum of 4 riders per class), to ensure safety and lots of personal attention.

As with all of our lessons, children are taught not just to ride, but to groom, tack and clean up after their horses.  This holistic approach teaches awareness and understanding of animal behaviour that translates into better understanding and communication in the saddle.

Our curriculum follows the Ontario Equestrian Rider levels, and parents are encouraged to understand requirements before enrolling in a specific group lesson program (outlined below).  Better yet, start with a private lesson and speak with our instructor about the appropriate level for your young rider!

Our Pony Club Coach, Jayden Heck, is available at 905-407-8914 or at ponyclub@ridetheranch.com

Interested parents and children are welcome to drop in and watch a class, and parents are always welcome to stay and (unobtrusively) watch their children progress.
