Birthday Parties


Birthday parties are held year-round at SHEC, and are perfect for riders with little to no experience. All riders will learn about horse safety, how to groom and tack up their horse, and will then ride for about 30-40 minutes each in a group lesson setting.

After having ridden, riders will then get to learn more about horses such as breeds, coloring, markings, anatomy, polishing tack, etc. We also have a table and canopy available for party-goers and their parents to relax under if food or cake is brought.
