Horsemanship Riding Lessons

Horsemanship riding lessons are designed for ages 8 and up and are designed to teach a person to evaluate, care for, and handle horses safely. The lessons are divided into four topic areas:
                                          - Knowledge
                                          - Groundwork
                                          - Grooming & Saddling
                                          - Riding                     

Horsemanship lessons are taught as group lessons on a four-week block schedule. 

Beginning A (for lack of a better name) is our basic beginning class.  Students with no experience  at Schow’s Ranchette and over 8 years old will start with this class as well as some 6 to 7 year old that need to move out of YOU & ME & HORSE MAKE 3. Students will focus on safety, ground skills and bareback with a little bit of saddle riding. Beginning A lessons are one hour per week.  

Beginning B (for lack of a better name) will be our 2nd level beginning class.  Students will maintain and grow what has already been taught in Beginning A and move to riding in a saddle, work on lots of trotting, start their English riding and western loping.  Beginning B lessons are 1 1/2 hours long.  Student may advance to Intermediate/EM lessons when the basic safety, ground, saddling, and riding skills have been passed off.  

Intermediate\EM  will be for those who complete Beginning B.
