Now entering its ninth year, the Green Meadow Waldorf School Equestrian Program is an after-school program for children in Grade 1 and up, and teaches children to ride in the English discipline. The program runs for two 12-week sessions, from late September through April, and is led by Sandy Volpe, High School Applied Arts teacher, class advisor, and horse owner/rider.
Group lessons (30 minutes, 6 riders to a group) are on Mondays OR Wednesdays at the Ramapo Riding Center in Suffern, NY. Which day a child attends depends on his/her riding experience, as determined by a Ramapo Riding Center trainer's assessment.
Students are transported to and from the Riding Center by the school, and receive lessons from a trainer. The bus leaves Green Meadow at 3:15pm and returns at 5:30pm.
The cost for a 12-week series of Monday or Wednesday sessions, including transportation and instruction, is $420.
