Royal Ridges Retreat provides a horsemanship riding lesson program which addresses safe handling as well as riding and care of the horse. Lessons include riding time, fellowship time and horse science. Fellowship time includes prayer, discussion and topics relating the Bible to horsemanship. Students attend once per week. Classes are 2 hours long and include 45 minutes of time on a horse.
Due to our Summer Day Camp programs, horsemanship classes are only offered during the school year. Winter Break and Spring Break aligned with Battle Ground Public School schedule will also be off.
