1st level- walk only. students would learn horse care, safety, and would walk only(roughly $20 and hour?) ages 4-11
2nd level- walk/trot only.($25 an hour?) ages 6-11
3rd level- walk/trot/canter. ($30 an hour?) ages 7-11
4th level- all gaits, groundpoles and jumping ($40 an hour?) ages 8-11



sooooooooooo......does anyone have any other ideas? im open to anything and does anybody have good exercises or activities for children.

thanks,
