Safety First!


No one is permitted on a horse without proper certified headgear! Helmets are provided by Stepping Stone Ranch, but children must supply their own footwear with a 1/2 to 1 inch heel, and proper riding pants or jeans for riding. No sandals or shorts please! Only closed-toe footwear permitted to protect little (or big) feet! Children are never left unsupervised with horses and precautions are taken to make sure everyone has fun without getting hurt!
