This class will cover different strategies on gaining connection, respect, and responsiveness from your horse on the ground. We feel this is a vital element that every rider needs to have before working on their partnership in the saddle.
During the class, we will set you up with one of the Five Horses’ lesson horses, so that you can work on the techniques you learn with a horse who knows/understands them (i.e. This is the time where you get the opportunity to work on you, before you take everything you learn to your own horse). After that, we’re suggesting that anyone wanting to work on specific trouble areas with their own horse set up private sessions with one of our instructors.
We’ve found this system to be very sound, as it gives you time to learn and work on things you need as a handler/leader before you begin working on issues with your horse. We prefer to tackle one partner at a time! Our goal is to help you form a deeper connection with your horse on the ground that will translate to your time in the saddle.
