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 anyone cexperience!  Our horses are relaxed even when their riders are excited and nervous while our environment is encouraging, upbeat and uplifting!

  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

This class is a follow up to 101 or if you've taken some lessons with us already. Besides getting to know a new horse, we will work on a posting trot and some fun patterns. Your balance, confidence and control is sure to grow as we explore new horsemanship skills together.
