We have begun to reopen the barn after being closed for about 6 weeks due to COVID19.  That being said, currently we are trying to get all of our students served who were with us before the shutdown.  We are currently not able to accept new students.

Lessons for experienced students are hands off, with verbal guidance only.

Beginners are taught 2 at a time.  They are met at the arena with their horse already prepared for them.  The parents will then assist with mounting.  They are also required to stay so that they can handle the water bottle for the student.  And they will be asked to assist in dismounting if necessary.  We will then take the horse to the barn for untacking and rinsing.  The student can leave once they have dismounted.  These lessons are 45 mins in duration, but are all riding for 45 mins.

Currently, we are not planning full day camps for the summer.  Perhaps we will have half day camps but they will not start until mid-July.  The barn will be closed for lessons once the Waterford's first grandchild is born (due 6/28) for a couple weeks. We will make announcements as the time gets closer. But for now, we will not be having summer camp as in years past.
