Little riding adventurers can expect to learn:

+ The art of effective horsemanship, as opposed to simply experiencing lead pony rides.
+ Attitude, balance, control, and confidence (mind-body skills) that will serve your child for years to come.
+ The same program used when teaching small children in The Outlook Academy’s professional lessons – all in a fun, loving environment.

The added bonus? Research has shown that kids who grow up in a safe environment and who have positive early learning experiences go on to become physically, emotionally, and socially healthy adults!
