First the kids lead, groom, saddle, learn some ground skills and then ride, ride, ride. If the kids are feeling a little tuckered out, they can stop for a snack at any time, get a drink, visit the restroom, or take a break at the petting zoo. Campers will learn from kind, experienced instructors in a playful, safe atmosphere.
