Adaptive Horsemanship


What is Adaptive Horsemanship?

This is an unmounted program that teaches how to care for, communicate with and exercise the horse from the ground. This program is appropriate for those that are unable or unwilling to mount for reasons such as weight restrictions, severe fear of heights, inability to weight bear and transfer with assistance or sit without significant support.

What is the Cost?

Our cost is $40 per lesson. We run on a seasonal schedule therefore invoices are sent out at the start of each season.
