Cot­ton­wood Farm starts Chris­tian rid­ing club

The Covington News - - Local - HAY­LEY WIL­LIAMS news@cov­

Cot­ton­wood Farm will kick off their new Chris­tian rid­ing club for chil­dren be­tween third to eighth grade on Mon­day, Oct. 1, at 4:30 p.m. The fee is $100 per month, along with other ad­di­tional fees which will vary by in­di­vid­ual students.

Ken­neth and Teri Jus­tice will teach classes with the help from Amy McKaughan, who is a trainer at Cot­ton­wood.

The club of­fers horse­back rid­ing lessons, group Bi­ble study and horse sci­ence classes. Lessons will be ev­ery other week and will be tai­lored to each stu­dent’s rid­ing level; the club is not just for be­gin­ners. The horse sci­ence classes will be on the weeks with­out lessons and will teach the chil­dren about dif­fer­ent things from breeds of horses to styles of rid­ing.

“We don’t want to just have kids show up and have a rid­ing les­son but to re­ally learn about horses. An­other big as­pect is the Bi­ble study and try­ing each week to re­late the study to horses and horse­man­ship,” said McKaughan. “We want to get a big group joined to learn and grow to­gether and adapt to what the kids want. We don’t want it to feel like a class­room set­ting, but we want our fo­cus to be where they want to do and learn.”

“We want to reach out to the community and have a place for kids who want to learn about horses and also have a com­mon faith in God,” Ken­neth Jus­tice said.

Club meet­ings will be held ev­ery Mon­day from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at Cot­ton­wood Farm, lo­cated at 2120 Wood­lawn Road in Cov­ing­ton. Students should come to each meet­ing wear­ing pants and shoes with a cov­ered toe and heel. Hel­mets will be pro­vided by the farm.

Mem­ber­ship forms are avail­able on­line at cot­ton­wood­farm­
