Hands-on
How and why - Grooming, Tacking up, Haltering and leading, taking the heart rate, cleaning the feet, other important care information,  Identify parts of the horse, saddle and bridle.  Training techniques.  Riding the Tennessee Walking Horse and feeling the gaited glide ride.
The Horses?
Students will be matched with a horse for their ability and some will ride multiple horses during the week. Riders will be grouped according to experience. 
Safety is our first priority.  Riders must wear helmets and the saddles are outfitted with safety stirrups.  Tennis shoes are OK so the rider has maximum flexibility in the ankles.
