Young equestrians enjoyed Easter Camp at the Cayman Riding School on Hirst Road in Savannah over the long holiday weekend.
Children as young as 4 years old rode ponies and enjoyed seeing bunnies and other animals in the riding school’s Children’s Farm, as well as a miniature donkey, two mini-goats, guinea pigs, chickens and miniature horse.
“Our camps are highly supervised, and this year we were able to offer one-on-one supervision for our youngest campers,” said Tracey Surrey, riding instructor and the school’s owner. “Our ponies are specially trained and very tolerant, so they are safe for young riders even if they have no prior experience – it’s a lot of fun and children are able to learn at their own pace.”
Ms. Surrey said there are both mental and physical benefits from horse riding, including increasing balance, coordination and motor function, muscle tone and flexibility.
