HORSEMANSHIP RIDING LESSONS
Did you know that horseback riding has been proven to reduce stress and increase strength and flexibility. Combined with being outdoors, this is a very holistic experience for horseback riders. Working with these large animals increases self confidence, decision making, increases patience and empathy. Our lessons are also given under a covered arena and on the trail. Parents can enjoy time on the farm or wait in the climate controlled waiting area. Contact us for a tour today!
Natural Horsemanship is a philosophy of working with horses based on the horse’s natural instincts and methods of communication, with the understanding that horses do not learn through fear or pain, but rather from pressure and the release of pressure. We offer English and Western based lessons.
