From The Ground Up

Intro to Horsemanship lessons is the ideal way to start an equestrian journey. Safety, respect, hard work and real horsemanship concepts taught in youth-friendly and adult contexts. Whether you are "filling in the holes" of your equestrian knowledge or starting as a blank canvas, you will learn everything it takes to create a thoughtful and comprehensive foundation. 

 

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. You or your child will achieve a sense of real accomplishment, comfort and knowledge for horse care. 

Each 50 minute session provides 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.​

Sessions are serviced in El Dorado off HWY 49 and China Hill Road. 

Per Session Rate:  $75
