HORSEMANSHIP PROGRAMS

Our horsemanship programs offer a unique riding approach to grow self-awareness, build confidence, improve communication and develop a more meaningful connection with the natural world. During the eight-week program, students gain a solid foundation of horsemanship to continue their riding education, as well as skills that can be helpful in all aspects of life. In each session, participants learn horse-care, barn management, groundwork, and riding technique. Sessions run for eight weeks and classes are 1.5 hours. The fee for each eight-week session is $240 unless otherwise noted.
