What do I need to know to start a group at Blissful Dreams?
***Group/class sponsorships are available.***
Please see our Sponsorship Info or contact us to find out how you can sponsor a group or class***
Class size: The number of riders able to ride in a group or class session also depends on the number of volunteers, teachers, teacher assistants (TA's), therapists, etc. that are willing and able to help the day of the group or class riding session.
Required supervision: For school groups, teachers and TA's are required to provide assistance as needed, as they should know their students and the students' behaviors best. This is necessary to provide a safe environment for the riders and for our horses.
Attire: Please wear appropriate footwear when around the horses (closed-toe shoes, preferably boots). *Absolutely NO crocs or sandals.* We recommend clothing such as jeans, long sleeves in winter, short sleeves in summer, etc. Clothes and shoes that you don't mind getting dirty. Helmets are provided & required, although you may bring your own if you'd like. Thank you for helping us provide a safe environment for all of our riders, volunteers, and horses!
