Home School Programs
Our Horsemanship & Riding Programs will be held the same time for a 4 week session. Horseback riding lessons are very social as well as physical. Classes help build friendships both human and equine. Its a great way to earn PE credits. We are forming classes now. To register, Please email teri@magnoliaacresfarm.com. 

Classes will be held for 4 consecutive weeks unless otherwise noted. There will ONLY be ONE make up session except for weather cancellations. Classes will start mid March.

Monday- 1:30 or 2:30pm   Horsemanship Level 1
Thursday  12pm & 1pm  (Level 1& 2)

Introduction to Horses-($75)This program is designed to help those that are timid to become more comfortable working with the horses. We will spend the 4 weeks learning safety, grooming, handling, nutrition and overall care for the horses. We will have activities to learn about breeds, science and markings.  This program doesn’t include any riding except at the last class. Class will be 45 minutes. Classes will be offered on Monday, Wednesday & Thursday or Friday- flexible with time 


Horsemanship and Equine Science Program- Level 1-  ($125) During this 4 week program, students will be immersed in the world of horses. We combine horsemanship with equine studies to create a complete education. We give the students handouts to review prior to each class. By reviewing the work sheets, the rider will have a better understanding of horses and basic riding. Each week the rider will spend about 1/2 the time working with the horses to become comfortable around them. After the ground work is complete, they will have a riding lesson. Since students progress at their own rate, we will tailor the riding portion accordingly.

Riding Lesson Program-  Level 2-  ($135) This is designed to further improve the riders skills. This is for riders 5 & older who have completed level 1. We will spend the first few minutes of each lesson reviewing what was taught during the first level- such as safety, horse behavior, proper grooming & tacking up techniques. During this program, we will focus on further developing their seat, balance and control. The goal of this program is to have riders mount/dismount, walk, perform different trots and continue jumping small obstacles with balance and confidence.
