Riding lessons begin with safety first and basic horsemanship. As instructors, we make sure our students stay safe and are comfortable with what they are doing before moving on. We like to incorporate games in the lessons, like "simon says" and fun patterns, to help kids stay motivated while learning.
Lesson horses are available or you may also bring your own.
My programs start by evaluating each horse. From there, I decide where I need to start to help the horse learn what the owner is asking for. As most horseman and women know you cannot put a time limit on training or teaching a horse. You must to do what the horse needs and work with what they offer. I take very special care of each animal that enters my facility. Each horse is treated as in individual personality and not just a number or machine. I do not drill horses. I use a "less is more' tactic that works extremely well.
