“As coaches ourselves, albeit not equestrians, my husband and I are very aware of what it takes to effectively communicate with students. Kim and Sara have been working with our young daughters for the past year and we have been most impressed with how they are able to challenge both girls and cater to their abilities and even, at times, their fears. We have watched our eldest completely blossom into a confident rider who looks as much at home on top of her horse as standing next to it. Our youngest, only six years of age, has been the biggest surprise in that she tacks up her horse almost on her own, jumps on and is now off cantering and looking to show soon. We are so happy we found 3 Peas in a Pony and can’t imagine riding anywhere else.“ -Trina and Tom Erhard
At 3 Peas in a Pony, children learn all about the horse, both in the saddle and around the barn. Children learn how to care for their horse with instruction on equine behavior; veterinary and hoof care; and horse feeds/grains. Children also quickly become proficient on horseback, and with the gentle guidance of our schooling horses, all students acquire the skills that make them comfortable and capable in the saddle.
Private Lesson: $45/hour
Group Lesson: $35/hour
What fun! Riders will learn all the basics of horse care, riding and barn management. This includes haltering, leading, brushing, saddling, and riding as well as barn clean up. The emphasis will be on safety, based on the standards of the United States Pony Club. Completing the session gives your child an automatic invitation to join the 3 Peas ongoing riding program. Note: We will ride, but it will only be a small portion of our hour- long lessons. 4-6 children per class with two instructors. Click here for the program flyer.

The 3 Peas in a Pony Leasing Program offers those children who are interested in continuing riding an opportunity to take on a horse as if it were his/her own horse. By offering children access to their horse outside of a scheduled lesson, children become responsible and conscientious ‘horse-owners’ as well as gaining considerable skill on horseback.
