PHC Ponies &

Tots Program


Designed for children ages 3 - 6 years old, PAT creates a safe environment for first exposure to horses. This program introduces a healthy positive equestrian experience at an early age, that promotes fun, physical literacy and respect for animals to last a lifetime.

PAT, designed by Danielle Yaghdjian and offered exclusively at PHC, facilitates children to develop basic human movements and link them together in active play around horses. Children will have their first exposure to horses and the stable and will learn basic grooming, riding, theory and safety practices. We reinforce ‘FUNdamental’ movement patterns by having beginner riders practice on a vaulting barrel prior to their first interaction on horseback.

PAT works as part of our LTED ‘Active Start’ program. It is structured to enhance a young child’s physical, mental and emotional development while enjoying a farm environment with safe horses and ponies.

Skill Development Guideline:


  • Safely pat a horse or pony under supervision

  • Handle aa brush and learn basic grooming

  • Feed treats by bucket

  • Know what a horse eats and drinks

  • Demonstrate respect for all animals

  • Balance, harmonious movement and relaxation exercises on a vaulting barrel

  • Mount & dismount a horse or pony with assistance

  • Build trust and confidence through pony rides

  • Basic use of reins and stirrups

  • Give voice commands to horse

  • Know simple parts of the horse
