Our Students experience what it takes to become a reliable partner to their horse, their team and themselves. Our Riding Academy begins its educational program at the hitching rail where students learn how to safely manuever around a horse during grooming and saddling. Safety checks on equipment are reviewed each time before mounting. The riding session involves learning how to be a good leader to a herd of two... the student and the horse.
Here students learn to give clear signals for moving their horse forwards, backwards, left and right. At the end of each session, everyone pitches in cleaning up the training area and putting away the tools and equipment.
The Riding Academy educational program aligns with a current movement in reclaiming what America once was with, the Cowboy's Code of the West.
