Barn Buddies is our horsemanship for older students. Students will learn horse care, barn management and other horse responsibilities. Barn Buddies will teach how to communicate effectively with horses through body language and leadership both in the saddle and on the ground.
Class begins with a 15-minute check in complete with healthy snacks, themed discussions and sharing. At Misty, we believe in the power of the group and, in keeping with our mission, we provide time and space to nurture connections. Each week we chose a theme to discuss and embody our skill building activities. Examples of weekly themes include: relationship, boundaries, leadership, self-reflection, acceptance. The horses become the co-facilitators of these weekly themes as they give their honest and unbiased feedback in the sessions.
