Horsemanship for kids
Unless kids are fortunate enough to be born into 'horsey family's' (as I wasn't!!), they are often only taught the most rudimentary riding skills, and often no solid ground-work skills. We have comprised a program to establish achievable ridden and groundwork techniques which will give confidence and competence around horses for any future equine endeavours. Our program is designed to act as a firm base for any future discipline.
Saturday 17 November 11.45am - 12.30pm StableComfort Arena, John Deere Pavilion
Applying kids horsemanship skills
By teaching kids more specific control of their horses both on the ground and in ridden capacity, they can then approach any riding (or led) discipline with more softness, confidence and precision. Safety is also paramount around horses and by increasing the understanding of how horses think and how we can influence their behaviour, everyone will be safer around their horses.
