Course Descriptions

By popular demand, we are now offering horsemanship courses.  These courses are designed for both children and adults. 

All courses are designed to create a well-rounded, competent horseperson.  Our horsemanship course incorporates curricula and standards from nationally recognized organizations such as the Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) and Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH Intl.).   Each level will learn horsemanship skills, both “on the ground” as well as “mounted” including grooming and proper care of the horse, tack and equipment, veterinary care and horse terminology.  

Each course meets weekly for 1 hours for 9 weeks.  The cost of each course (except the “Minis” and “Novice Level 2”) is $275.00.   The Fall Semester begins Monday, September 9th.
