$25 for One Try-It Kids’ Horseback-Riding Lesson ($50 Value)
Designed for children, the Try-It lesson gives kids a chance to hop atop a pony for a 30-minute lesson. Students learn to prepare their mount prior to riding; afterward, they clean the tack and learn about proper postride care.
Gap Spring Farm
Gap Spring Farm's family-focused environment suits its main clientele: children. From an early age, kids can visit the farm and learn the basics of walking, trotting, and galloping during group or private lessons. The farm's stables are open to horses of all shapes and sizes, and its summer-camp program provides a safe introduction to riding, grooming, and kissing ponies. Once students have learned the reins, they can show off their skill in one of the farm's horse shows, which are scheduled three or four times a year.
