What you'll do
First, we will ask you what experiences you've had with horses and what your interests and goals are for now and for the future. You will work with a newborn - 6 month old foal. You will learn grooming, foal imprinting and how to desensitize a foal to human touch and different objects like a plastic bag. You will practice leading and sending exercises. You will spend some time with the mare and foal going on a walk in the field or by the creek. Parts of this activity could be a physically demanding on your knees, arms, and/or back. At the end we will take a break in the barn and treat you to drinks and snacks!
I would LOVE to share my passion for horses with you — connecting with, training, and the relationship between the horse and the horse trainer. I have worked and played with horses for 37 years. I bought my first unbroken pony after I graduated high school in 1979. Using a book for instruction, I broke her myself. Since then, I have studied different methods of horse training. My husband and I own a barn wedding venue in which the bride can ride in on one of our horses. I have started a girls horse club and camp and discovered how much I love teaching! I'm also a NICU RN which I did for 20 yrs
