Discover the magic of horses! Surrounded by the stillness of winter, we will seek shelter in the barn with the Mountain Horse herd and other animals. We will learn animal communication (through body language and intuition) and an arsenal of horsemanship skills including grooming, leading, and massage. This is the temple of true relationship: where we stop making demands and learn to just be. These classes are split up into different age groups and are suitable for those with no horse experience or those with some familiarity who would like deepen their horsemanship skills and true relationship with animals. Hot Chocolate, tea and cookies are provided.
We will learn to meet the animals and herd on their terms, with respect, wonder and a sense of curiosity. We will learn the basics of how to communicate with horses through body language and intuition, and move into grooming and group leading exercises. Each class will be a little different as we will be in the moment with the animals, following their leads and invitations.
This class is designed for children ages 6 and up. Parents have an option to purchase a ticket and accompany their child if they wish, or they can drop them off and have a leisurely brunch in town and pick them up when it is all over!
