Women’s HANDS ON HORSES WORKSHOP

We had a fabulous time on the weekend of Sept 17 & 18. Women's 40+ hands on horses workshop. Ok, so one of the "women" was only 12, but we overlooked that flaw... lol. This workshop was developed to offer women who have always wanted to get up close and personal with horses but never had the chance, the opportunity to do so. It was also for women who haven't been around horses for a while - offering a chance to get that much needed "horse fix!" We went over ground work basics, proper leading, round penning and control techniques; grooming and also got everyone back in the saddle. This was so much fun, and I think the ladies enjoyed themselves. We would love to offer this workshop again sometime! Continue reading
