The horsemanship clinic takes place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 17, and Sunday, May 18. Those who are auditing will be spectators in the arena, watching Charlie Andrews teaching the participants. Students learn horsemanship skills from Andrews, who has experience in hunter-jumper, dressage, rodeo, jousting, and Western and English riding styles.

Halter, Inc.

Dog therapy is common in hospitals and hospice care facilities, but the nonprofit organization Halter, Inc. fills its stables with miniature horses trained in animal therapy. The gentle horses bond with children with special needs and at-risk teenagers, helping them build confidence and express themselves emotionally. The staff has designed riding lessons to teach horsemanship skills to children with special needs—however, all children are welcome to learn—and invites youngsters in third to eighth grade to join its Pony Express Club, a service program in which they assist with toddler horse rides and offsite events, such as petting zoos. They also host camps and celebrate children's birthdays filled with pony rides and games, but the horses have objected to any rounds of Pin the Tail on the Horse.

Customer Reviews

Be prepared for the dirt...from the free parking to the ride to the event and back. Hard to locate a restroom but It was one tucked away. Cool for younger children.

Go early in the day.

Relaxed fun for a good cause - bring wipes / sanitizer! (They have sanitizer, but still good to have in your pocket!)
