skill courses

Each course will begin with a safety orientation and tutorial on how to "speak" horse. We will then start with a discussion on the skill topic before breaking off to spend time getting to know and groom your horses. Each horse will be assigned to a maximum of three adults for the obstacle challenge portion of class. As groups work with their horses and each other, we will continue a dialog on the skill topic. Lastly, we will come back together as a group and review your experiences, insights, and personal realizations about the skills practiced with our horses.

We will never have to tell our horse that we are sad, happy, confident, angry, or relaxed. He already knows – long before we do.
