During classes, kids as young as 2 receive a safe, formal introduction to horses with the security and encouragement of a parent by their side. Both adults and their foals learn proper grooming and tacking techniques before the young one hops on the saddle to enjoy an easy horseback ride. All safety equipment is provided, and lessons are scheduled by appointment.
Stono River Riding Academy
Since its founding by Marion Reid in 1969—and through its adoption by current owners Michelle and David Folden—Stono River Riding Academy has helped riders connect with temperate steeds and with their natural surroundings on 360 acres of trees and pastures. During classes and leisurely rides, trainers lead mounted explorers through the labyrinthine passageways of Johns Island, passing beneath billowing drapes of Spanish moss and escaping the cacophony of urban areas. Stono River’s staff always keeps safety in mind, ensuring that pupils wear proper equipment and familiarize themselves with all the confusing controls on the horses' dashboards.
