Day 1 Learn the basics of the "How To’s" in the 5 Essentials of Horsemanship.
Morning session will be horseless in which everyone will need to bring a saddle pad/ Blanket to kneel on and learn the basic shapes we want to put our horse in and how to apply our aids to achieve this.
After this session we will work in small groups ,one group at a time and size of groups will depend on number of participants. Each group will work about 45 minutes to an hour and in this session we will address any individual needs of the horse and rider, be it learning lead changes , saddle fitting, balancing rider to straighten horses etc.
Once we work through each group we will finish out the day with one more riding session this one including all riders and working on lateral exercises for supling, gait constituency and just over improvement of performance from our horses.
Start the morning out with a question answer session between myself and the riders.
Then again break into our small groups working each separately and applying the day before’s work into pattern work.
Final session of the day as a total group again riding together working on rating of speed and consistency done in a drill team format.
