Oak & Saddle Equestrian Program

    Brownie      Junior      Cadette      Senior      Ambassador 

The Oak & Saddle Equestrian Program is designed to identify the elements of good horsemanship in ways that can be applied to other relationships in our everyday lives.

The horses serve guests as an extension of the outdoor experience that Tall Oaks is most noted for. A relaxing ride through the trails of Tall Oaks will melt the tensions that harried adult lives tend to bring on. Youngsters achieve personal confidence by climbing aboard one of the majestic mustangs and experiencing the challenge of communicating the steps of a task using their natural aids. Bodies and minds flex and grow as a result of participating in this wholesome activity.

Cost Per Girl: Varies
