Activities for Homeschool Students

Several options are available for homeschooled students, both group and individual. Homeschool groups may choose to schedule a field trip to the farm. All field trips include horse or pony rides and a Q&A time in which kids get to learn many interesting facts about horses and their care. Our Homeschool Farm Day program offers horseback riding along with other activities such as crops of NC, gardening and nature walks around the farm with tree and leaf identification. Picnic facilities are available.

Individual family activities are also available. Our 30 minute rental sessions give children a chance to come out and ride a pony or horse under the supervision and assistance of our staff. We also offer 1 hour private lessons which include grooming and preparing the horse for riding in addition to in-saddle riding instruction. Appointments are required for all activities.

Sprouts Lesson Program

For those little ones who want to ride more than once a month, but are too young for the weekly youth program, we now offer a special program just for you. These private lessons provide the one-on-one attention required for this young age group. Sprouts participate in all the "big kid stuff" and get to help with the grooming and tacking up prior to their in-saddle lesson. This program is a wonderful supplement to our monthly Pony Club Program and gives the little ones a chance to do more hands-on work with the ponies.

Ages 6-7
August - May

Field Trips for the Kids


Kids will enjoy a riding session on our ponies or horses followed by a question & answer session. During this part of the program, kids will learn about what our ponies eat, how we care for them, and the jobs our ponies do here on the farm. They will also learn about different riding styles.

$9 each (10 Kid Minimum)

 

A variety of fun and educational activities can be added to your Field Trip experience. Kids and adults can enjoy a hay ride around the farm; children can experience what is was like as a frontier child while taking a ride in our authentic covered wagon, or learn how to milk a cow with Bessie, our simulated milking cow. Our Crops of NC Program allows guest to visit our educational garden to see and learn about the major crops of North Carolina, sample farm foods and learn about composting and water conservation. Guided nature walks with tree and leaf identification are also available. These additional activities are priced separately.
