Horsemanship Lessons

1/24

The focus of these lessons is to understand horse psychology, body language and leadership on the ground, which is then applied to the saddle. From there, students are given the opportunity to take what they've learned out on trails along the front range. They can also dive into some jumping and dressage.

Here's a sneak peak of how our lessons are structured: 

  • How to catch a horse in the pasture

  • Learn to tie and groom 

  • Groundwork (leading, lunging, yielding of shoulder & hindquarters)

  • Liberty work

  • Obstacle Course

  • Transition to riding after a relationship has been established on the ground

  • We also have seasonal activities: i.e. swimming with horses in the lake (usually late summer, early fall)

$50/hour lesson 

$45/hour for kids lessons ages 12 and under 

This can be a perfect gift for a special someone. Gift certificates available.

 A majority of students come out to learn how to work with horses for the shear joy of it and to experience a very special relationship with these amazing animals. If there's a specific disciple  that students express interest with showing in, we will certainly explore the opportunity! Whether it's a competitive trail ride, dressage show, etc. We all aim to be supportive of each other and make it a positive experience, so horse shows and competitions are not our primary focus. 

 

In Biblical times, horses were considered a powerful ally for winning wars. It says in 1 Kings 4:26 that King Solomon had 40,000 horse stalls! Today, we might not be charging into battle with them, but they can still help us overcome personal enemies such as insecurity, fear, doubt, and pride. God can teach us a lot through horses! 

Trail Rides

Students can graduate to trail rides after they gain confidence and ​are adept on the ground and in the saddle. We have grand adventures along the front range and in the national park!

  • How to prepare for a trail ride (what to bring) 

  • Safely load horses in trailer

  • First aid 

  • Strategies to tie the horses in and out of the trailer

  • Encounter various obstacles that make trail riding exciting
