  • $27 for one parent-and-child horseback-riding lesson (a $55 value)

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.

All safety equipment is provided, and lessons are scheduled by appointment.<p>

Stono River Riding Academy

Stono River Riding Academy is a dressage-based riding school owned and operated by David and Michelle Folden that 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. The academy also offers a summer camp program as a fun and exciting way to introduce children to the beauty of horses and riding. Stono River’s staff always keeps safety in mind making sure that every one is comfortable and familiar with the basic controls of a horse.
