HORSES FOR KIDS AS YOUNG AS TWO
To put it mildly, Karin’s Horse Connection is an amazing place.
Karin Schmidt has been loving horses her whole life and her story is as unique as the business she owns. Originally from Germany, she has years of horse riding and training experience to go along with her Master’s Degree.
“We have happy horses,” she tells me, “which is why we can do vaulting (gymnastics) on horseback. You wouldn’t want vault on a horse that wasn’t happy.”
Your kids can ride on Karin’s happy horses! She offers a huge variety of ways to get involved, including
- Riding Lessons
- 30 minutes Runt Rider Program starts at age 2. Ride your pony, brush it, feed it, do fun things in the barn.
- Vaulting (Gymnastics on Horseback) for ages 2+
- Open Vaulting Every Saturday at noon ($15, no experience or signup needed)
- Trail Rides
- Mommy & Me
- Adaptive Vaulting
- Therapeutic Riding
- Birthday Parties
- Field Trips
- Own-a-Horse Camp in Summer & Spring Break
