Equine Theory Sessions are set up to build confidence when working with horses and to educate the rider/handler on safety.

Our goal is to have you complete these courses and be well rounded in the proper care and handling of the horse or pony.

The majority of work will be on the ground, not mounted. We will cater to different levels by offering easier exercises or more challenging exercises for the advanced rider.

  3. SHOW PREP: braiding, mane care, trimming and clipping.
