Relationship Based Riding Lessons

Learn to partner with another living being who shares their power, freedom and strength with us, and mentors us in grounded, kind, and authentic ways of being in the world.

Mountain Horse School's relationship based riding lessons are taught one-on-one or in semi-private pairings. We use english style tack, and bitless bridles for the comfort of the horses, and integrate insights and techniques from across all disciplines to provide an environment where the students' enthusiasm, interests and confidence and lead the way. We can accommodate riders looking for a first experience/encounter with a horse, or more seasoned horse people looking to further their awareness and connection with their mounts.


Because working with animals on the ground is so essential to developing a true understanding of them, a portion of each lesson will be spent on grooming, tacking up and groundwork, allowing students to also learn equine body language, behaviour and psychology. 

Engaging in a relationship with horses helps students to:

  • Develop self esteem, confidence and awareness
  • Feel a sense of respect and connectedness to animals and the natural world
  • Cultivate understanding of the body language and intelligence of another species
  • Feel comfortable, supported and empowered in relationship with their own bodies
  • Activate intuition, empathy, and an understanding of energy as the basic medium of communication for all life
