Introduction to Horsemanship - 120001

This class is required for all new students. It covers basic horsemanship skills including safety, grooming, tacking, and basic riding skills, thus building a foundation for our continuing riding program. Three lessons are non-riding. Students will learn to enter a horse's stall and lead the horse from its stall to the arena. They will also learn to tighten the girth and adjust their stirrups, techniques to properly mount a horse, the proper dismounting procedures, and returning the horse to its stall. As students become proficient with these skills actual riding time will increase accordingly. Students and parents should also be aware that due to the nature of the horse, behaviors such as spooking, biting, kicking, bucking, and playing will occur. "How to" handle these situations as a rider are an integral part of horsemanship and will be addressed in lessons. Session runs 8 weeks, makeup lesson available 3/16/17. Please note that any session of Group Riding Lesson fess can be pro-rated to accommodate a participant's schedule, such as family vacations, school events or any other absence that would be known at the time of registration. This can only be done in person at the Stable facility.
