Happy Holidays, Everyone!

Firefly Farm loves kids. We also know you’re busy.

We’re offering gift certificates for the Holiday Season. Pop a check in the mail and we’ll send you back a gift certificate of your choice.

-Pony Ride: $5

-One Hour farm tour (includes four pony rides): $30

-Single Horse Lesson: $30

-Girl Scout Badge Events: $10 per child (includes riding)

-Birthday Parties: $10 per child (No additional costs!)

-Set of Four Horse Lessons: $100

-Classroom/School/Daycare visits: (includes 3-5 non-equine animals) $50 for approximately an hour long visit.

We ride:

English—jumping (no higher than a hay bale!), and beginning dressage

Western—pleasure or beginning gymkhana games (no galloping here!)

Sidesaddle

Vaulting—basic safety and movements

Bareback

Driving—how to handle the horse from the ground and how to hook up a cart properly; parts of the cart. Students are not able to drive the carts themselves, but they’ll be shown how it’s done and can ride with the instructor.

Our facility has an indoor and an outdoor arena, so we’re able to ride year round. Our instructor is a K-8 schoolteacher who loves teaching and using psychology. These aren’t just riding lessons—they’re horse and life lessons with math, science, history, and English integrated into each session.

Minion Program—when the kids volunteer at the farm, for every 8 hours they volunteer, they’re “paid” with a free horse riding lesson.

    Hello, this is Nickie. I have 2 daughters. One who is 7 and the other will be 13 this month. Both have had riding lessons. My daughter Jayden who is 13 is the one who I need to get back into lessons… and maybe a long ride for my 7 year old, as it scares me to let her ride the horses. I saw that a work program is available and that is what I am looking for. I was also looking into doing a partial lease of a horse.
    If my 13 year old could work 4 hours on Saturday and the same for Sunday, could that work for her a free lesson on either of those days? Also, would I have to stay there with her while she works and through her lesson? I would have her only work every other weekend, bc she goes to her dads… and purchase the 4 lessons for $100, for a weekday that she is home.
    So every other weekend, work for lesson…
    Then every other week, i buy her a lesson… by buying the 4 for $100.
    Please email me back and let me know if this could work. Thank you!
    Sincerely, Nickie Sovia

    • Nickie,
      Please call me at 517-332-7669 so we can talk about meeting in person.
      We have a Facebook page for Minion workers which lists possible times. Your daughter needs at least four lessons before she can enter the program. 🙂
      Give me a call and we’ll chat. I love new students, and your daughters sound wonderful. 🙂
      Sarah
