Horsemanship for Veterans and Active Duty Service Members!

Our horsemanship class is open to both veterans and active duty service members of the U.S. armed forces. This class focuses on teaching horse behavior and psychology, safety around horses, as well as basic groundwork skills as a platform for further equine education, and as an exciting opportunity for experiential learning.

Through meaningful individual and group interactions with our horses, participants will learn how to create safe, fair, and effective horse-human relationships, and may develop or improve important life skills such as self-awareness, self-confidence, verbal and non-verbal communication skills, and emotional regulation.

Some benefits of this program include:

  • Camaraderie with other veterans and active duty service members of all branches of the U.S. armed forces
  • Volunteer opportunities
  • Progressive work toward advanced horsemanship classes and other workshops or clinics
  • Horseback riding opportunities
