OUR HORSEMANSHIP PROGRAM IS ABOUT CONNECTING WITH HORSES FROM THE GROUND UP THROUGH TRUST AND RESPECT
Our horsemanship program goes farther than the traditional riding or lesson program. Horsemanship is a lifelong journey of developing knowldege, skill and the relationship between horse and horseman. The state of that relationship at any given time is a combination of many factors, including trust, respect, leadership, experience, technique, physical condition, diet and more. We work closely with both horse and student to evaluate the state of the current relationship and to create and implement an individualized plan for moving towards the next level of the relationship and horsemanship skills. We savor each accomplishment. Then we set new goals and begin the process again to work towards yet a higher level, always striving for the softest communication possible from the ground as well as from the saddle. As practiced at Meadowsweet Ranch, this longterm commitment to enhancing the relationship is what separates the horse rider from the true horseman.
To truly develop a trusting, respectful, harmonious partnership with your horse, we believe your horsemanship must be progressive and based on techniques that bring a willingness from the horse to participate in a human/equine partnership.
Rider and horse need to develop a relationship based on trust and respect. We will help you achieve a partnership and harmony with your equine friend.
Students develop confidence, balance, coordination, teamwork skills and much more.
Our program will help you achieve your goals whether it is to ride in a show ring or out on trail.
Our program combines groundwork (on-line and at liberty); and exercises under saddle in a safe, progressive skill building format. Instructor and students work as a team.
Riders with enough experience will be able to enjoy an occasional ride on the trails, off-site trail rides, over night trips and horse vacations, participation in the ranch activities, special events, seminars and clinics of their choice. Students and their families become members of our Meadowsweet Ranch Family.
Our lessons are for all ages: 4-104
