Junior Pony Trainer

Junior Pony Trainer is a class designed for older kids with or without prior horse or pony experience.  Each child will be paired with one of our unique rescue ponies so they will continue to grow the bond and trust between them.  This program will include lessons in patience, perseverance, compassion and understanding as your child learns what motivates each different pony and experience the many rewards of working with rescue animals. 

Junior Pony Trainer is also a great place to start for anyone hoping to volunteer or work for Ponies and Pipsqueaks in the future!
