Holistic Horsemanship

Holistic Horsemanship lessons offer a well rounded approach to many aspects of horsemanship including safety, body language and communication, leading,  grooming, basic care, tacking up, and horseback riding.

We tailor our programs to meet each students needs and goals, allowing for a number of available options including working with horses on the ground, focusing on specific riding skills, and/or incorporating wellness practices such as core strengthening, energy medicine, stretching, breath work, progressive muscle relaxation, and meditation.

Working with horses is fantastic for all aspects of our beings - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. These lessons allow participants to the time and space to to focus on wellness and personal growth. Students of all levels experience an increase in clarity, communication skills, coordination, and balance while connecting with horses in the great outdoors, whether it be in an enclosed arena space, or on tranquil trail rides through the beautiful countryside.

Holistic Horsemanship Workshops

Women, couples, families, and other groups create lasting memories, strengthen bonds, and learn about how our own energies relate to our interactions with horses.

Throughout the sessions we work on activities to improve internal balance, enhance grounding, as well as improve our horsemanship both on the ground and while riding. Participants generally leave feeling lighter, more connected, and in tune with the other participants, both human and equine.

Day Camps & Group Activities

 
We offer a few different types of Horsemanship Camps and Group Activities throughout the year, ranging from 2 - 6 hrs in length. These are most commonly scheduled for Pro D Days, weekends, and during Spring, Summer & Winter breaks. Camps are great for any level of rider, and promote skill development and communication in a fun format for those who wants to have an equine adventure!

Horse Around in Nature Camps 

During these camps we explore a wide variety of horse and nature related activities including, but not limited to; caring for horses (feeding, trimming, basic first aid, bathing, etc), horse handling, and horseback riding, as well as trail riding skills such as reading a compass, making emergency shelters, and more. 

Themed Horse Camps 

Each day students learn about a different aspect of horsemanship, i.e. Cowboy Day, Trail Day, Show Day, Medieval Day, etc. We cover many of the skills involved from the prep and groundwork to riding. 

A Horse Course & 

Homeschooling With Horses

These four to six week programs are great for individuals who are interested in learning about horses in a group setting. We cover a different theme each week,  spending 2 hrs working through theory, activities on the ground, and horseback riding.

We also offer a progressive series of camps allowing the information to adapt as students learn and grow.

Private Camps 

All of the above camps, as well as Holistic Horsemanship Workshops and Equine Assisted Learning, are available to individuals and private groups. We mix and match programs to create just the right camp or group activity for you, your family, your organization, etc.

 

If you are interested in another type of camp, let us know and we may be able to create one to suit your needs and goals. We've done everything from groundwork only to specific types of riding to horse ownership prep for students getting ready to purchase their first horse. Camps are a great way to get out, have some fun and work on team building, family bonding, and deepening relationships.
