Clients engage in activities that support comprehensive care and handling of equines and activities that are necessary and useful regarding safety procedures for equine interaction. Lessons address equine behavior, communication, grooming, equipment, leading, health, handling and overall basic equine management.
Horses are beings with feelings, thoughts, emotions, memories and empathetic abilities and are highly social animals within their herd dynamics and interaction with humans. Social interaction open areas for communication for self-discovery and develops character skills designed around essential components relating to the field of equine-assisted services. Relationships between client and horse, client and instructor, and client and volunteer/s are formed to promote care and responsibility while gaining the fundamental knowledge of the equestrian world.
