COYOTE CLUB CLASS DESCRIPTIONS


Equestrian (more at Riding and Horsemanship School)

Grade (as of September  2017): KG-1st Tuesdays, 2nd-4th Thursdays 

Class Size: 6 students 

Class Tuition: $324/ 8-week session

Time:  3:30-5:00 — choose Tuesday or Thursday based on age

The Coyote Club Equestrian program has been developed with a unique purpose- to give students confidence handling horses and to introduce them to a variety of horse related topics in addition to riding- horse equipment, breeds, anatomy, feeding and care, poisonous plants, and horse drawing.  Additionally, we schedule special visits by vets and farriers during Horse Experience classes in order to give participants a “behind the scenes” understanding of the special needs of their equestrian friends. Students will be introduced to extensive ground work, which is practiced throughout the sessions.  Riding instruction is taught English style.  This class is appropriate for beginning students who have never interacted with horses, students who have ridden before but would enjoy gaining a more in-depth understanding of horsemanship, and for experienced students who enjoy the social dynamics of being with other young horse enthusiasts. Visit the Sienna Ranch Riding and Horsemanship School page for more details on our equestrian programs.

Each week students are encouraged to focus on a specific aspect of their shooting form, while reviewing skills learned in previous classes.

The Sienna Ranch Explorers program develops a deep connection to the natural world by offering fun, exciting and diverse outdoor experiences. Our core activities include hiking, survival skills, animal interaction, wild tending, homesteading skills, gardening, cooking, nature based crafts, games, unstructured nature play, exploration, observation, and one field trip per session.

Each session we offer the opportunity to earn a Sienna Ranch Certification Badge. Certification Badges are a fun and non-competitive way to focus our explorations, and to delve deeper into topics such as first aid, knife skills, oak tree care, and much more. We will take a little time each week to build the skills and knowledge required to earn the session’s Badge. Certification topics rotate on a three year cycle.
