Youth Workshops

There's more to horses than just riding!

There is a lot to learn about horses other than just riding to become well rounded in equine education.  We are offering half day workshops, level 1 and level 2  that expand on your child’s knowledge with more “hands-on” experiences, as well as classroom education, which support your child’s need to understand horses and how they think.

  • Build confidence

  • Learn to be in control/safety concerns

  • Teamwork, leadership and sense of community

  • Responsibility
