Mountain Horse School offers private, semi-private and group riding/ horsemanship lessons. We use english style tack, but integrate insights and techniques from across all disciplines to provide an environment where the students' enthusiasm, interests and confidence and lead the way. From riders looking for a first experience/encounter with a horse, to more seasoned horse people looking to further their awareness and connection with their mounts, let us guide you to something unforgettable.
Our way of teaching adapts to follow the students and their horses into the present moment, and includes the whole experience: your lesson begins the moment you arrive a the barn, and encompasses greeting, catching, getting your horse ready to ride, and untacking your horse and putting them away afterwards. This ground time naturally helps us learn equine body language, behaviour and psychology. It also helps us soak in the benefits of slow horsemanship-- letting our nervous systems and psyches settle and attune with our horses. Think of it as an opening and closing ceremony for your ride.
