Horsemanship 101 and 102
Ages 6-18 years old

Are you looking for a cost effective way to see if riding is a good fit for your child? Are you looking for a fun and healthy activity geared towards developing responsibility and good work ethic? Are you interested in expanding your skills and knowledge caring for horses? If so, this is a wonderful opportunity to accomplish those goals.

Horsemanship 101 is a class series aimed towards teaching students the basis to becoming a safe and knowledgeable equestrian while allowing them to spend hands on time at the barn putting that knowledge to use. This class is structured to give students the building blocks that will allow them to be comfortable around horses either before transitioning into riding or if currently riding a building block to strengthen their ground work and become a more educated equestrian.

Students in this course will gain a strong understanding of horsemanship through readings, hands on activities, and journaling. During this educationally rich science program, students will learn: how horses move, their anatomy, horse's jobs, horse's gaits, different horse breeds, their wants and needs, proper care, horse history and more!

 

This hands on and classroom oriented class is perfect for avid horse lovers to extend their equine knowledge. 

Classroom time is 1 hour and 30 minutes.
