This Summer School focuses on developing the students' skills under saddle based on their current skill set (if any). It includes education about the horse as a species, how it thinks, learns and survives, as well as about specific horses that are a part of the school.
 
Non-riding activities include learning the pattern for the mock show through drawing, walking and other memorization techniques, learning and practicing proper technique for falling off a horse, a horse-related craft and providing horse care.
 
Lunch time will include the ability to cool off in wading/kiddie pools, visit with each other and have discussions with the trainer about horse health, training, nutrition and more.
 
What to Bring:
Packed lunch, water bottle/sports drinks, bug repellant, rain coat, sunscreen/sunglasses, etc, appropriate riding attire (yoga pants/leggings and tennis shoes are acceptable for beginners), comfortable summer clothes and flip flops/casual summer shoes for the afternoon.
 
We will Provide: Water
 
Mock Show:
Mock Show and Potluck at 6pm Friday for students to show parents and family members what they worked on and learned throughout the week.

Students are expected to stay at the farm Friday afternoon to rest (a movie will be shown) and prepare their horses for the show.
 
Daily Pick Up and Drop Off:
