From The Ground Up

Intro to Horsemanship lessons are the ideal way to start your child's equestrian journey. Safety, respect, hard work and real horsemanship concepts taught in youth-friendly context.


Sessions will cover all the basics from catching a horse to correct posture in the saddle and everything in between. Sessions are built to provide a rounded education that shows all aspects of horsemanship, not just saddle time. Your child will achieve a sense of real accomplishment, comfort and knowledge for horse care. 

Each session provides one hour of instruction based on the age and experience of the student. Full size horses, miniature horses, and donkeys are incorporated for lessons. The curriculum includes safely performing tasks such as catching a horse, leading, tying, ranch chores, anatomy, grooming, hoof care, feeding, tack, groundwork, and basic riding.​ ($60)

Sessions are serviced at Wirgler Ranch off HWY 50 and the Shingle Springs Rd exit.
