Engaging in a relationship with horses enables students to:
Lessons are taught one on one or in intimate semi private pairings so the students' enthusiasm, interests and confidence can lead the way. Perfect for riders looking for a first experience/encounter with a horse, or for more seasoned horse people looking to further their awareness and connection with their mounts. We use english tack to enable a closer connection to our horses, though we integrate insights and techniques from all disciplines. Because working and being with horses on the ground is so important for developing true understanding, relationship and mastery, a portion of each lesson will be spent learning grooming, tacking up, and groundwork, as well as horse communication, behaviour and psychology.
Adults/children 6 years of age and older:
* to enrol in semi-private lessons, students must be able to ride comfortably at a walk and trot without assistance, and have taken a minimum of 2 private Lessons at Mountain Horse School.

"This is the most fun activity I do because it I get to spend time with horses and learn a lot of different things about them and riding. Kera makes learning easy and very fun! I love playing games during the lessons and Kera is very creative."

"Kera is so patient and knowledgeable, which makes learning to ride fun and relaxing. She creates such a supportive environment and progresses the teaching at a perfect pace. The physical setting is stunning and I look forward to each week. Spending time with the horses, being in nature and learning something new is an awesome bonding activity to do with my daughter."
