BASIC HORSEMANSHIP & WESTERN RIDING LESSONS
THESE LESSONS ARE A GREAT WAY TO INTRODUCE YOUR CHILD/CHILDREN TO THE WORLD OF HORSES Our basic riding lessons will be focusing on educating and inspiring the young horse loving children . Building confident while learning how to be safe around horses on the ground & in the saddle. , reading the horses body language & knowing what to expect by the way a horse is acting or reacting to something. Putting on & properly using a halter & lead, brushing and grooming your horse, horse anatomy, cleaning the horses feet & why it's important to spend time on the ground before going to the next step of saddling a horse, bridling, mounting & dismounting safely from the horse. Learning how to control the horse with the reins & how to use your legs & body to help with their control
Students will also learn how to control the horse at a walk, trot, & when I feel ready at a lope. When the student is ready we move from the arena pen out into wide open spaces; we go out on trail rides, play 'red light, green light', and follow the leader. Students will learn how to be safe out on the trail, around groups of other horses and on roads. Looking out for each other & building friendships with fellow students We spend up to a hour & a half riding each lesson session . All riding is in a Western saddle .
