“After School at the Stable”

Serving the Conifer, Bailey, Pine, Morrison, Evergreen & Golden, Colorado, communities

Looking for an after-school program?  Centaur Rising (CR) offers a horse riding program that aids self-confidence, improves grades, helps the home school or shy child make new friends and helps the child with ADD (attention deficit disorder) focus.

After School at the StableCR’s “After School at the Stable” (ASATS) program builds upon what the child has learned in horse riding lessons and horse camp.   Since children are encouraged to make a school-year-long commitment to ASATS, the program enables the child to advance significiantly in his/her riding skills.  It is also consistent with our long-term commitment to youth development.

The school-year-long commitment to ASATS provides a “horse crazy” boy or girl with the continuity necessary to truly improve their skills.  As with many other endeavors, joy and self-esteem come with dedication.  ASATS also provides a multi-school social network, a welcome respite from the stress and challenge of own’s own individual school environment.

ASATS offers horseback riding after-school activities Tuesday through Friday, September through May, to children ages eight to fifteen.  Hours of operation are 3pm to 6pm.  Students of Conifer High School, West Jefferson Middle School and Elk Creek Elementary may arrange with their school to take the bus (W-2) to the stable.  We will be glad to help organize carpooling from Evergreen, Conifer and Bailey, Colorado, schools.  School horses, riding helmets and an indoor horse arena are provided.

Prerequisites  Any child riding in the "After School at the Stable" program must be able to trot in accurate patterns.  If you/your child cannot yet do this, please sign up for private lessons.  These are also available after school!

Format   Children are offered a one-hour group horse riding lesson.  Supervision is provided when the child is not receiving horse riding instruction.  Children may do homework, observe other horseback riding lessons and horse training or do minimal horse care activities or other chores around the farm.

Structure   CR’s after-school program is not just for participants.  Our more experienced students assist with teaching and supervising students.  This gives the more advanced students the opportunity to practice teaching what they have learned.
