This class introduces the novice rider to the fundamentals of horsemanship as well as the proper administration of care for the horse and equipment. The two hours a week include one hour of actual riding time in which the student learns to walk, trot, and canter the horse, and one hour of preparing and caring for the horse and equipment. Students are expected to provide their own transportation and appropriate foot gear.
Unique considerations: course fee to cover cost of horses and equipment. Students must provide their own transportation to stables.
