Lessons

Our lessons are one and a half-hour long with activities that may include chores, grooming/saddling, riding, games, hiking, learning horse behavior, and playing. Please note we do not offer trail riding.

  • By Appointment Only – text or call Wendy at (218) 428-3580
    • 10:30-12:00p.m.
    • 1:00-2:30p.m.
    • 2:30-4:00p.m.

Please be on time for each lesson. If you are late for a lesson, it will be altered according to the discretion of the leader or rescheduled.

Requirements for Participation

  • Our youth lesson program is open to all children ages 5–18 with a weight limit under 220 pounds. Seeds of Hope Youth Ranch’s volunteers work with any child willing and wanting to be here.
  • Volunteer leaders work one-on-one with each child that comes in, meeting their individual needs. While we do not wish to turn any child away, there are a limited number of youth lessons available each week.
  • Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a lesson for every child who wants one, although, Seeds of Hope Youth Ranch does try our best to make it possible. It is important to be on time for your lesson, but if you are unable to make it please text or call (218) 428-3580 at least one hour prior to your lesson time. At this time we “require” your children to be able to get on a horse and sit independently in the saddle.
  • To keep all of our volunteers and participants safe, Seeds of Hope Youth Ranch is now requiring a face covering to be worn at all times by anyone over the age of 10 once you arrive. We do not have masks available for your use, please remember to bring your own. Contact us in advance with any questions.

 

Seeds of Hope Youth Ranch has always offered our lessons free of charge and operating costs
are supported through volunteers, grants, fundraisers, and your donations.

Unfortunately, our annual fundraisers have been canceled this year due to COVID-19.
We are asking for your support of a free-will donation for your child’s riding lesson.
all donations are tax deductable

 

What to Bring to Your Lesson

  • Shoes/boots: with closed toes and closed heels are required. (We usually have extra boots on hand)
  • Long pants for riding
  • Weather changes, so please dress in layers
  • Please bring water bottles and sunscreen
  • Items forgotten can be found in our Lost and Found, items not claimed by the end of the riding season (October) will be donated or disposed of.

Parking

We request that all session participants park by the barn stall area (where the clipboard news is)

  • For special events, follow the parking signs and attendants to the designated parking areas.
  • Please do not park in the parking area by the residential home.
  • Please do not park on the grass.
  • Do not bring your pets to the ranch.
  • All garbage, wrappers, gum, Kleenex, papers, etc., must be picked up to prevent accidental ingestion by the horses which would result in illness for the horse.
