Our Lesson Program
The goal of riding is to learn to move with the horse, working with the horse's natural instincts. The benefits of horseback riding are many. For the adult, it is one of the best forms of exercise using almost every muscle in the body. Through riding, the body experiences increased muscle tone and coordination, balance and flexibility in the joints.
Aside from great physical benefits, the psychological benefits are many. Riding can be a form of relaxation; many adult riders call it "therapy" especially with all of the demands of today's world. There is a great sense of accomplishment and confidence gained. Children, and adults, learn to care for and appreciate another living being, as well as learn responsibility, teamwork, sportsmanship and gain confidence in their abilities.
BEGINNING THE BASICS
Our riding lesson program offers one-on-one sessions which introduce basic horsemanship with an emphasis on safety. On the ground lessons, riders will learn to groom, lead, bridle, and saddle the horse. While on horseback, riders will do exercises and games which teach correct posture, balance, communication with the horse and basic fundamentals of riding.
Our classes are structured for both adults and children. We adapt each program to the individual rider and horse for balanced equitation in English and Western disciplines.
