Welcome to Sugarloaf Farm

We offer kids and adults the opportunity to experience horses in a relaxed and safe environment. Our goals are to teach quality horsemanship and solid riding skills. We have the experienced lesson ponies and horses to do that and the instructors to make it a reality.

This is the Sugarloaf Farm office and barn located at South Bay Horse Ranch.

Covid 19 lesson adaptation

Jul 17, 2020

There is a change in the way we teach now because of Covid 19.  It used to be that the pony would go in two back to back lessons, with one child getting the pony ready and the next child putting the pony away.  We are no longer doing that.  Each child will now get their pony ready, ride and then put the pony away.  We are scheduling an hour for this and have increased the price to $60 per lesson or $540 for 10.  The upside is that we are in less of a hurry.  The downside is that there are fewer lesson slots in a day.  

Camp in the time of Covid-19

Jun 16, 2020

We now have an outdoor functioning sink which is a wonderful addition to our lives.  Obviously it was installed for hand washing during camp but to be honest it's useful for many things.  

Crafts in masks is doable when all the kids want to work together.  We can do this.
