This entry level class is a no pressure, individually paced exposure to the wonderful partnership between horse and rider. We take the approach of the need to understand the horse's mind, the process of training and how to use the mutual language of riding aids to communicate commands on horseback. We will take you through how to safely remove your horse from their paddock, halter, groom, tack, adjust all equipment, properly mount and start the process of developing correct riding position. This is an exciting, challenging sport as it requires a level of trust and willingness on both participants; rider and horse. Rainy days will offer opportunities in the barn to learn more extensive skills such as mane pulling, braiding, tack cleaning and watching equine training videos. As you pass through the initial beginners' stage, more skilled exercise will be added. The Beginners Plus class is for beginners who have some exposure to horses and a basic understanding of tacking and communicating aids. For more information visit White Buffalo Horse Farm on Facebook.
