Make it your New Year's Resolution to Ride a Horse
Horses4Heroes makes goal of learning how to ride a horse a reality
All new students, ages 6 and up, start with a four-lesson package, "Introduction to Horseback Riding." This package, which includes a 30-minute riding lesson with professional instructors, is just $100. For more information on lessons, "mommy and me" classes for ages 2 to 5, camps and birthday parties, email email@example.com.
In addition, the community is invited to ride horses every Friday-Sunday. All rides include admission to the Barnyard, the Funny Farm bounce house, donated by Jones Feed & Tack, free admission to Floyd Lamb Park and hay rides, when available.
The fun starts on Friday with $5 Fridays, offering horseback rides for just $5. Guests can ride from 10 am to Noon, and 1:30 to 3:30. Every Saturday and Sunday visitors are invited to Saddle Up, offering rides for $10.
"Want to ride a horse or introduce your kids to horses? Riding horses at Floyd Lamb Park is easy, affordable and fun," said Sydney Knott, president/CEO/
The non-profit provides affordable riding lessons for beginners, English and western, seasonal, holiday and "no school" day camps, field trips, birthday parties and free experiential workshops for veterans with PTS/MST/TBI, domestic violence victims, recovering addicts, at-risk youth and teens and others who need a hand up, not a hand out. Horses4Heroes programs are created to empower, engage, inspire, educate, entertain and employ. The organization has facilitated the employment of disabled veterans and local teens.
In 2014 and 2016, Horses4Heroes won the American Horse Council's Time to Ride Challenge, a national initiative to introduce newcomers to horses. Horses4Heroes is the only repeat winner of this challenge. Horses4Heroes is the only national equestrian non-profit that owns its own horses and uses those horses, including retired, donated and Feed Lot rescues, every day in programs that serve local heroes and the community. The organization's large and growing national network of equestrian centers in 45 states and Canada offer affordable, sometimes free, recreational, instructional and health and wellness programs for all ages, all riding levels and in all disciplines.
