Daily Horsemanship and Riding
30 min per day per student, in saddle - Sleep away students may ride up to 2hr daily
Remember: horses are living 1200lb animals, please have realistic expectations about time in saddle.
We have limited horses, some weeks are larger. Horses are with the class m-f. We may have the occasional HOT summer days. We may call a "bath day" and skip riding for the horses well being. We keep our primary focus on concern for our rescue animals needs. Every day we will groom, train, bathe, work on tack, horsemanship, tricks, and safety.
Horsemanship is 1 to 1.5 hr. (per group) we usually split the day into 3 groups
(30 minute turns on horseback)
in arena, out on the lesson trail & other days working with natural horsemanship training methods.
We cover a large variety of information over each week. Students work with the horses, both on and off.
Everyday Rides are in a controlled lesson environment with trainer and trainer helpers (CIT).
Rancho riders are responsible for safety of others and themselves during all of our activities.
Depending on a variety of factors we have 4-5 horses that work a low impact 3-4 hour day
We encourage more experienced students, help less experienced. Older students are encouraged to take leadership roles in our daily activity.
