Pony Pals 

The next meeting will be  Sunday, Sept 21 from 3-4:30.    Please contact Shannon Habenicht at [email protected]. *Attendees can be Kindergarten to 5th grade and current CCA students. Please be on time for drop off/pick up.  This group meet’s one Sunday a month for 1.5-2 hours as a way to give our young riders more time around horses, but also give them an opportunity to build great barn buddy friendships, which goes ‘hoof and hoof’ with riding horses! Pony Pals does not include horse back riding, but some activities include lungeing demos, learning how to braid horses for shows, relay races, riding demos, grooming time, treasure hunts around the barn, and more. As the group continues to grow and bond, there are lots of exciting things ahead. There is no monthly fee to attend, though sometimes $2 may be required for snack. Riders are asked to wear boots and come prepared to have a fun time! There are two adult Pony Pal coordinators at every event – Shannon Habenicht (her daughter, Finley, rides at CCA) and Kelli Lyons (her daughter, Grace, also rides at CCA).
