Current Class Descriptions:
Intro to Horse Care (4 weeks/$100)–Our entry level class for new participants, in which students learn the basics of expected behavior and safety around horses, proper grooming, general horse facts, and leading. ALL new students begin in this class no matter their previous horse experience, as it gives our team the chance to get to know each child and observe how they interact with the horses, respond to instruction, and work with others in groups and one-one-one settings. Each student is paired with at least one volunteer.
Stirr-UP!: Beginner Riding Levels 1, 2 (4 weeks/$100)–*Open only to graduates of the 4-week Horse Care class. The first classes to put kids UP in the saddle! We will practice safe mounting and dismounting, learn about the items of tack our horses are wearing, and use lots of games and exercises to become comfortable, secure, and balanced on the horse’s back. In Level 1 and 2, all leading of the horse is done by a volunteer, with another volunteer beside the child as a spotter if needed. More use of reins is gradually added throughout Level 2. We will also continue to learn more about horse care and practice their groundwork skills.
