A Truly Special Experience…Right in Town

SophiaPonyOct2015One of my daughter’s favorite after school programs last year was The Pony Share program offered by Ridgewood Rec. She and about 15 other children met weekly at The Stable to learn everything from grooming to riding ponies including mounting, dismounting, and simply holding the reins. The older children even learn English and Western styles of riding. My daughter absolutely fell in love with the ponies. She knew all their names, their quirks and personalities. She even helped scoop their poop at the end of each class!

Ridgewood Red is offering a summer Pony Share program.
