Wattland II initiates young equestrians into the world of horseback riding with private lessons and camps. Private learners saddle up for a one-hour trot around the riding ring and trail where they’ll take in views of the surrounding stables and pastures. Greeting sessions foster snout-to-snout time as patrons pat and feed majestic steeds and instructors teach secrets about how to care for horses and teach them the finer points of trigonometry. Kids seeking to improve human-equine relations can attend day camps, which combine saddle time with crafts and games. Half-day camps also include snacks, so kids can sate their thirst for knowledge while appeasing their hunger for something more edible.
