A first step into the world of horses.

About Us

The Mini Rider Academy is a place for kids, ages 3-16, to experience the world of horses outside of your traditional show barn setting.  We've created programs rooted in safety, kindness, and fun; with a wide range of equestrian topics taught by experienced

equine professionals.
