Any groups wanting to gain horse knowledge is welcome... from school field trips, moms clubs, homeschooling groups, birthday parties, Girl Scout troops, summer camps and more!
Our program lasts about about 2 hours. During that time, you will:
◾We'll have an orientation and tour of the stable as we discuss with you the care of horses. We will explain what they eat, how much and how often. We'll talk about what kind of treats horses can safely eat and enjoy. We'll also discuss what is included in the everyday care and running of a stable and what is necessary for the well being of horses.
◾We'll practice safe stall and barn behavior.
◾We'll examine the tools needed to groom a horse and discover the purpose of each one. We'll learn how to brush a horse before and after saddling.
◾We'll also discuss safe riding rules, good ring manners, safe clothing and gear for riding for both English & Western riding.
◾You'll observe and watch the saddling and bridling of a horse.
◾Each participant will then be lead around the arena, while walking/trotting after receiving a very basic demonstration of mounting, correct positioning, explanation of stopping and turning.
We hope you will come and ask questions and learn something fun and new about horses and horse back riding!
