of Light Programs
One important mission at Ray of Light Farm is to
provide a valuable resource for the communities of the CT River
Valley and beyond. We have something for everyone, and we are
now enrolling for all of our popular programs.
Tiny Trotters: a four
week program designed for preschool-aged children. For one day
each week, children spend an hour visiting with and learning about
the animals at Ray of Light. Each day includes a craft project
and snack, and ends with a pony ride! Safety is a priority at
Ray of Light, so all activities are closely supervised. We also
ask that children be accompanied by a parent or care-giver. See
our calendar to find the dates of
the next Tiny Trotter Session and call us at 860-873-1895 to register.
Please note: the rate for Tiny Trotters
has increased to $50 per 4 week session since Jan 1, 2013.
Riding Instruction: a
team of professional and certified instructors is available to
help students (ages 8 and up) from novice to advanced dressage
to develop their riding skills, ride balanced and centered, in
a true partnership with the horses. See our equestrian
