"You don't need to Own a horse-
you can fall in love with one of Ours !"
For many years, I have watched people being unable to control their horse from the ground. Leading misbehavior is dangerous and may result in injuries. Ever tried to lead your horse only to have it drag you over to some grass ? Ever tried to get your horse to actually walk beside you instead of pulling your arm out ? It is SO important to be consistent when dealing with horses- it's even more important to be consistent with instructions that the equine mind understands.
We are now offering Horsemanship lessons to those who don't want to begin riding immediately. Timid, unsure folks that might want to gain confidence by being able to control a full sized horse (or even a HUGE draft horse!) from the ground. They will learn how to longe a horse properly, how to actually teach a horse to follow their directions to do patterns in the ring. If one is interested, they can learn how to show a "halter" horse- learn the correct patterns, what their horse should understand and do and more.
Here at WoodFinn, we strive to have learning be Fun. Lots of laughter, but professional instruction... I don't believe in berating students or yelling at them for mistakes made. That doesn't work with horses and Sure won't work well in humans.
In addition to having a great time learning to care for a horse, they learn more about diseases, equine structure, and lameness. On days when the weather is bad, we have theory lessons in our tack room. That is when students learn how to care for leather/ tack, how to buy a horse that will suit them, they learn the parts of a horse and more.
You, or your child, will receive private, one-on-one instruction,
without the distraction and chaos of a group of students.
