PONY PALS Learn to Ride Age 4-6

The pony pal program at Dun-Pikin is very unique. Not many farms will teach riders younger than 7 years of age. We have designed a special program to help prepare younger horse lovers to enter our lesson program. Young aspiring riders (generally age 4 to 6) may enjoy our Pony Pal program. Riders learn about riding, grooming and general horse care at a very basic level and enjoy a lead-line walk under saddle during the 1/2-hour session. $60/half-hour session.

 All lesson payments are non-refundable and cannot be used as credits toward camps, parties or other barn activities.

Gift Certificates

Gift certificates are available for lessons and any Dun-Pikin Farm activity.


Dun-Pikin Doís and Doníts

Lesson horses are usually safe to work around, but you must still practice safety around the barn and horses at all times. Horses can bite, kick, move suddenly if frightened and by virtue of their size and strength even hurt you by accidentally bumping into you or stepping on you. Be careful! You must wear proper footwear at all times. This is a boot that covers the ankle and has a heel. Hiking boots are not safe to ride in while in the stirrup, so you need a riding boot. Also use quiet voices and walk when in the barns. When walking or leading the horses always have a lead rope or bridle on him. Please keep plenty of distance between horses in the barn and when riding. Also keep horses tied on cross-ties when tacking and grooming in the barn. All riders must wear an approved riding helmet when mounted. Remember it is you we are trying to protect with these simple rules. Please be careful!


  • Wear an approved helmet when mounted at all times

  • Wear appropriate riding shoes with a heel

  • Dress for the weather

  • Stay out of the barn aisle while others are tacking up.

  • Arrive early for your lesson

  • Call at least 24 hours in advance to re-schedule a lesson

  • Leave gates the way you find them
