About the Foundations of Horsemanship Summer Program
This 5 day program uses horses to make learning fun! It is a fantastic way for children to learn the fundamental needs of a horse and learn basic horsemanship skills in preparation for riding.
Children will have a set of daily duties at the ranch that include:
- Morning Feeding
- Cleaning stalls
- Care of horse tack
During the foundation course, children will learn: safety around horses
- The proper way to groom a horse
- Parts of the horse
- Hoof care
- How to read a horse’s behavior
Each of these components will be tied in with grade appropriate math, science, critical thinking and language art skills. The last 2 days the children will have the opportunity to mount the horse and practice all the skills they have learned throughout the week. All students are required to have a signed Release of Liability on file. Helmets and snacks are provided. The cost is $199.00 for non program members.
