The Horseshoe J Dude Ranch offers Pony/Horse clubs for children ages 4 and up. These clubs run for 10 weeks during the Spring, Fall, and Winter months. During the warmer months, we try to be outdoors enjoying nature as much as possible. During the colder months, we have an indoor riding facility with a warm room overlooking the arena for parents to watch. Please give us a call or text at 519-762-5402 for more information and start dates.
The "Pony Club" is geared towards children that are ages 4(Junior Kindergarten) and up that are beginner riders. Safety around ponies/horses is the focus while learning balance and having fun on horseback with games and activities. Each child has their own pony and has a one on one staff member assisting them.
