Description: 

This summer, Horse SenseAbility in Sherborn MA will again offer 4 weeks of the City to Saddle program. City to Saddle gives 6- to 13-year olds from underserved communities an opportunity to interact with horses and other farm animals in a relaxing rural setting.

This week-long, half-day summer program combines equestrian activities with barnyard experiences. On a daily basis, participants groom the horses, learn about horse care, do barn chores, enjoy a horse-related creative activity and take a riding or horsemanship lesson.

City To Saddle is funded by generous private donations so there is no cost to qualified participants other than the $15 per person commitment fee.

Session run from Monday to Friday from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and can accommodate a maximum of 6 children.

 

·         Session 1: Monday, July 15th – Friday, July 19th

·         Session 2: Monday, July 22nd – Friday, July 26th

·         Session 3: Monday, July 29th – Friday, August 2nd

·         Session 4: Monday, August 5th – Friday, August 9th
