Youth Lesson Program

The youth riding lesson program here at Graystone Farm is designed to be a complete learning experience for our students. Becoming an accomplished rider requires a knowledge of all aspects of horsemanship.

Our program consists of a combination of in-saddle, ground work, hands-on and classroom lessons.

Students not only learn to ride, but they also learn what it means to be responsible for the care and well-being of a horse, about different riding styles, tack, horse psychology & body language, anatomy and much more!

Ages 9 thru teens
August thru May
Textbook optional
1 hour sessions
Weekly Program = $160 monthly
Bi-Weekly Program = $80 monthly
Individual Private Lessons - $40 per lesson









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.

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.

Field Trips for the Kids

Graystone Farm is an education based Equine Facility for youth of all ages. While visiting the farm children will get to see ponies and horses up close and personal as they each have a chance to pet and ride one of our gentle lesson mounts. They will also visit our Equine Classroom to learn about daily care, grooming, feeding, veterinarian and farrier needs and riding disciplines. Visual aids such as a PowerPoint presentation and a show and tell time help our instructors teach children about the many aspects of horsemanship.
