Homeschool Lesson Program
Our Homeschool program is designed as enrichment and athletic classes for kids K-12 in a group setting and can be customized upon requests. Students learn about safety, horse care, grooming, tacking up & the basics of riding.  If your child has a background in riding and horsemanship or if they would like lessons but might be more timid, please contact us before signing up for the Homeschool program.

Homeschool lessons are offered as small group lessons and maybe split by age/ability if enrollment warrants. Each lesson focuses on an aspect of horsemanship (grooming, tack, horse care, nutrition, conditioning, vet care, identifying horses etc.), basic riding skills (position, tack adjustments, steering, form follows function of riding) and hands on horse skills. 

For the safety of horses and humans, ALL riders in this program must be able to listen and follow directions.

While we do have guidelines for the program, please realize our program is ever changing depending on the age, level and number of students. At GES our doors are open to all and all our programs are all-inclusive for everyone. We aim for lessons to be safe, educational and fun!
