This GROUP class
focuses on teaching you to safely and competently handle the basic
training of a horse. Whether you own your own horse or
are just interested in learning how to communicate better with
horses, this class will get you started.
You will learn:
1) basic and
advanced techniques of lunging;
how horses learn;
different types of training including clicker
how to gain your horses respect;
5) basic techniques of teaching the young horse new
things (picking up feet, grooming, saddling, fly
spraying, tying, etc.);
6) trailering techniques;
techniques to answer your questions.
It is my expectation
that we will have 5-10 students in each class.
Initially you will take turns with one horse, but once you
have mastered the basics, you will break up into groups and
work with many horses. If you have your own
young (or not so young) horse you may bring your horse to
these classes; otherwise we will work with the trained and
not so trained horses at the barn.
This is a
two hour class and will be
held weekly. This class will
cost $50 per person per session. If you
are interested in participating, please contact
Vera Gannaway. New classes
will be forming on a regular basis.
Stay tuned for
information on an advanced
training class that will be
forming in the near future.
