Friday Evening Recreation Program

5:00PM – 6:30PM

Our membership program is designed to maximize supervised barn time and promote a safe and fun equestrian experience for students. It enables children ages 6 – 16 years of age to feel part of the McNab team, builds confidence, and provides them a learning experience with horses far greater than a riding lesson environment alone can achieve. Our members participate in a 12 week program both spring and fall and have first priority for spots in our other activities such as Summer Camps, Clinics, and McNab in-house shows.  During each 12 week session members will come to the barn for 1.5 hours on the Friday evenings listed below where staff supervisors and volunteers will be on site to engage the children in all aspects of horsemanship including:

  • Feeding
  • Grooming and horse care
  • Learning tack & equipment
  • Barn chores
  • Horse bathing
  • Braiding
  • Blanketing
  • Bandaging
  • Basic Equine First Aid
  • Occasionally riding will be included for the recreational members including some basics and horseback games

Instructional Program

This package includes 12 riding lessons during their stay on Saturday. Riders might be in a shorter private lesson (30 minutes including 10 assisted minutes getting ready) or a longer group lesson (1 hour including 20 less assisted minutes getting ready) depending on skill level.  Riders always start on a lunge line (a long rope from horse to Coach’s hand) where the coach has full control until they develop the confidence and skills required to safely come off the lunge line.  Once able to navigate independently they will evolve into longer group lessons and sometimes back and forth into groups and privates depending on what skill the rider is practicing at the time. 


We will do our best to place students in the appropriate groups and your group will be emailed to you by March 23rd.
