Working Student Program - This is a fantastic program managed by our Ms. Katy and is available
for all our students (Adults and Children ages 8 and up).  She will train you and explain your
responsibilities and give you the opportunity to work with the knowledgeable Barn Managers.  
The Details...For every five hours of barn work or grooming time (adults only for grooming) you will
receive a coupon good for one extra lesson.  This program earns you extra riding time on top of your
already paid lessons, not as payment for your regular class.  Your instructor will help you find that
other class.
