Class Descriptions

HORSEMANSHIP

The students gain a new understanding of their horse — how they move, why they move, and when to direct them.  This class helps horse and human gain confidence, safety, and the human, the ability to understand the horse. Remember, horsemanship is easy — get the horse to want to be with you whether you are on the ground or on his back!!! With three classes offered by Trina, there is definitely a class to match you with your horse’s ability. Foundation Horsemanship is a great class to learn all the fundamentals of understanding your horse from the ground and his back. Learn how to properly use the rope, flag, and other tools that can enhance your ability with your horse.  After having ridden with Trina quite a bit, fit yourself into Horsemanship 1 or 2 where each class becomes more advanced than the last.  The more advanced horsemanship class can include flying lead changes, working other horses, jumping, cutting, dressage or trail work!

CW-COW WORKING

Students learn to understand how to get the best out of their horse while working cattle and see how cattle and horses have so much in common in how you handle them. Ever heard that a cow is stupid? How many cowboys does it take to get a cow in a corral?!  No matter if you are new to cattle (heck, maybe you even ride in an English saddle!) Trina will help you improve your skills while staying safe! Are you a seasoned cowboy or cowgirl? Let Trina enhance and refine your knowledge to produce a bridle horse that’s a working partner for life!

CS-COLT STARTING

Time is taken to properly halter break horses and colts. Handlers get their horses used to being touched, saddled and prepared to ride. When the proper preparation is taken, the riding is no problem. This is a great class to truly unite with your steed and start understanding the importance of proper and practical ground work. If you are new to horses, this is the perfect class to start from scratch and build a lasting foundation with your horse. Have a troubled or bothered horse? Put it through this class and restart your horse’s thinking patterns to be a positive experience!
