The core of the program includes 90 minute sessions and guides students through all aspects of horse care from basic grooming to leading horses to riding. Our program is customized for each individual based on their age, skills, experience, comfort level, health and physical ability. Students are encouraged to become Ambassadors to the program at the completion of the course, offering their newly acquired knowledge to families entering the program. Lessons are taught by our Senior Riding Instructor Becca Smith, and our Assistant Riding Instructor Beth Knapp Engle and are FREE so that students will not be prevented from joining our program due to financial considerations.
Upon completion of program, all participants will be competent in the following areas:
Halter and tack up horse/pony
Use grooming equipment correctly
Leading a horse/pony from left and right sides
Understanding horses and how they communicate their thoughts and emotions
Steer horse at walk and posting trot
