Saturday Horse Course

Horses are the perfect teachers for children!  Once a child is taught the basics of working safely with a horse, they can become the leader the horse seeks.  When the horse feels safe, cooperation follows, and the child can effectively get the horse to do what is being asked of it.  

Horsemanship 101

Learning to communicate with your horse - either on the ground or in the saddle - is one of most rewarding and empowering feelings that a child can experience!  Our horses are relaxed even when their riders are excited and nervous while our environment is encouraging, upbeat and uplifting! 

We LOVE kids AND Horses! 

  In this introductory class, we will

- learn to think like a horse and see how a horse sees us and the world around them

- work with our horse safely on the ground and in the saddle

- develop a balance of trust and respect so that our horse understands and listens to what we are asking him to do

- learn how to groom and saddle our horse to ride

- mounting and dismounting our horse safely

- riding with confidence and a centered seat

- turning and stopping our horse

If your cowpoke can’t get enough of horses and is ready for more after attending a Ranch Camp or a Horsemanship 101 Program, THIS is the class you’re looking for!                                                                                                                      

We have designed this 10 week session to be jam packed with horse crazy ideas that will let your cowpoke get their horse ‘fix’ for the week.

 We’ll have a Halloween party (and dress up our horses, too!), enjoy beautiful fall trail rides, and do some games on horseback in the arena while we learn to confidently communicate with our four legged friends.
