The Eagles Pony Club officially kicks off Sept 1, 2018!
Pony Club offers us the opportunity to offer more education, events, and fun activities to more kids. Pony Club offers a structured curriculum with certification levels for our students to progress. For those that chose to grow with Pony Club there are scholarship and internship opportunities. These are some of the reasons we decided to form a United States Pony Club. If you have questions or are interested in getting involved, please feel free to get in touch with us!

2018 Sept/October Horsemanship and Riding at The 4 13 Ranch
We focus on Safe, Fun, Effective Horsemanship.
Riding and Horsemanship are taught using United States Pony Club curriculum. Not all teaching will focus on riding. We do not guarantee riding time at every day. We want our members to learn to safely handle horses on the ground, be able to groom, tack, untack, and care for their horses themselves. We will also cover management, hoof care, general knowledge, and first aid as the students progress.
We provide lesson horses and their tack and equipment. All riders must wear a ASTM approved riding helmet. We have extra helmets on hand if you would like to try them on for size and use them before you can purchase your own. We do recommend each member purchase their own helmet. Shirts with sleeves and long pants are required. A riding boot with a smooth sole and a heel are required. We do keep hand me downs on hand so if a member needs clothing or boots please let us know ahead of time and we will see if we have anything that will fit them.
All members must be accompanied by an adult unless previous plans have been made with the instructor. For insurance purposes, these dates are not open to nonmembers. Please visit the calendar for events that are designed for non members as well.
Beginners Group will be Monday and Wednesday after school. D levels will be Tuesday and Thursday. Classes are $25 each. The whole month needs to be signed up for and paid for in advance to ensure an appropriate horse for each rider. Higher level riders are encouraged to come help with beginners. Higher level riders will be given extra riding time when available on the days they help.
If the weather is not suitable for riding but does not pose a risk for members to attend, we will cover unmounted lesson topics. In case of severe weather, class will be canceled. I will always try to make a call in regards to weather no later than 12:00pm on the day of the class. I will text and post on Facebook if there is a cancelation. If you have concerns, please call ahead. If canceled, the $25 for that class will be refunded at the end of the month or credited to the next months class. No refunds for missed lessons as we reserve a horse for your child when they sign up. Thank you for understanding.
