Horseback Benefits

In these two hour lessons my students learn more than just riding. One hour is devoted to horse care and safety instruction, and one to riding and handling — but so much more is also covered!

  • Build confidence
  • Develop leadership skills
  • Learn responsibility
  • Learn behavioural science: what is going on inside the horse’s brain?
  • Participate in Physical Education
  • Experience horse health care practices
  • Practice basic principles of horse ethology and training
  • Discover the joy of working with animals

 

Lessons run in six week sessions. Six weeks is enough for a beginner to have a firm grasp on the basics of riding, or for an experienced rider to add new concepts to their abilities.

We provide the horses, their equipment, certified riding helmets (if you do not have your own), and quality instruction. We also have some riding boots, but recommend that you find your own. Any closed toe shoe with a 1 cm heel is sufficient.

In every skill, the foundation is vitally important. I teach my students the essential things they need to know to become comfortable with horses. My goal is that you will be able to enjoy riding horses and improve any skills you already have so that you can work with horses with ease, understanding, and pleasure.

Learn the science that makes everything else make sense.
