They all improved drastically as the season went on and never missed an opportunity to cheer on their fellow riders and help out whenever needed. Along with qualifying for Regionals, Double J Riding Club’s middle school team took home three High Point Team ribbons this year.

New Classes for 18mo- 3yrs

Double J Riding Club is excited to announce a new addition to their programs. Parent and Tots classes are a uniquely structured program that offers a place for both moms (dads, grandparents, nannies etc) and toddlers to play, learn and develop while meeting the animals at Double J! These classes are the perfect hands on experience for your 18 month 3 year old child. Parents and Tots are offered every week on Monday and Wednesday from 10 am to 11 am. Each classes is only $10 per child, we also welcome older siblings to join in the fun as well!

What’s more tot-thrilling than farm animals?

Little ones can learn about real live farm animals in the Parents & Tots classes at the Double J’s Farm! In each 60 minute class a parent/toddler duo might explore the farm grounds, listen to an animal-centric story, create a craft, feed animals, participate in Farm Yoga or play various games! Each class is themed (e.g. Lucky Lizards, Animals of the Night, etc.) and will guide our activities for the week. This is the perfect way to get your little one ready for Junior Farmers!
