TODDLER & ME
Horseback Riding Program
We pride ourselves in providing access to horseback riding at an early age. Whereas most barns start at 6 or 7, we begin instruction for riders as young as 4 years old.
That said, exposure to the barn and the feel of being on a horse can start even earlier. We’ve developed a program specifically for parents and kids ages 2-4 that will give them a taste of their future riding pursuits.
With a parent helping guide them alongside the horse while they ride, and additional horsemanship activities, we prime young minds for the love of horses and being at the barn.

WHO WE ARE
Our core values are based on the proliferation of confidence, empowerment, and responsibility. We exist to help people realize these things within themselves, we just happen to ride horses to do it!
We believe these attributes play an integral role in how we view ourselves and how we contribute to our community. Both of which are major pillars in our state of mental health and wellness.
We believe that people should embrace and enjoy every second of life!
WE RIDE FOR FUN!
BUT THERE ARE SO MANY BENEFITS!!
Besides having fun and being safe, fostering confidence and inspiring a sense of accomplishment is what we're all about! We can talk for hours about how being on the farm and interacting with animals can boost mental health and wellbeing for anyone.
We love our barn family! There's something about the barn that brings people together, and Autumn's Gate is no different. Whether sharing an adventure on horseback or mingling with new people at our events, this really is a great place to make new friends and to bond with animals.
HEALTH & WELLBEING
Improve your agility, core strength and balance, all while having fun and being adventurous. If endurance or cardio is your thing, we've got the perfect solution for you. In general, horseback riding is a perfect addition to any health regimen, or an added bonus to having fun!
ACADEMIC & COGNITIVE
We're not kidding! Studies show that horseback riding can cause a significant impact on cognitive function. Improvements in problem solving, memory and retention is common. We hear from parents often that their children are more motivated and attentive academically.
