There are two options to consider when deciding to commit to the Emmaus Horsemanship program.

Casual Students

Sessions are offered at $35.00 for 50 minutes. This type of commitment is for people who want to come and learn about horses, ride, or do groundwork periodically as their schedule permits. They may not be able to commit to the same day and time but may want to schedule one or many sessions in advance. 

Weekly Students

A special discount to students interested in maintaining a weekly scheduled time commitment to consistently improve upon all horsemanship skills is offered at $125.00 per month for a 50 minute session. The student will participate in a minimum of 4 horsemanship sessions each month. The monthly fee is due prior to the first of each month along with a commitment too attend a pre-scheduled day and time.

Semi-Private sessions are available upon request and dependent on the riding and safety skill level of the participants. We encourage family members and friends to participate in horsemanship activities together.

Tuesday at the Stable 

A small group of children meet every Tuesday for 8 weeks in the summer from 9:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m.to gain hands on experience in the care of horses and the stable environment. Reservations are taken on a weekly basis and the instructional class is offered at $45.00 per week.

Emmaus Horsemanship Inc. provides typical horsemanship instruction to people from ages 6 to 60. We follow the educational and safety standards set forth by the Certified Horsemanship Association. Emmaus Horsemanship students' interact with the environment, their instructors and with the horses to achieve personal goals that may increase knowledge and riding ability on a wide range of topics and/or self-discovery. Many years of research show that people's interactions with horses produce many educational and therapeutic-type benefits. The stable environment is our classroom. 

Our multi-faceted program offers specialized educational horsemanship activities to a variety of different people of all ages and abilities. Each person has their own unique gifts, talents, and challenges. Our program philosophy is to identify and use our God-given gifts while we set goals to reduce the challenges and become successful living an everyday life.  

The educational program at Emmaus Horsemanship operates on a fee for service. Emmaus Horsemanship is also a qualified provider for Medicaid Waiver through the Department of Human Services, Office of Developmental Disabilities.
