This is a “self-defense’’ from horseback” class. The first step is to introduce what type of control we need. There are things the human has to stay prepared for; the animal has to face up and not turn away, the human needs to know how to stay engaged in conversation, stay focused on a target and move the horse’s feet where you need them. I’ve always said “the horse’s feet have to become your feet!” This is an Awareness class! Stations will be set up to simulate potential unexpected situa-tions and what we need to be thinking all the time. I will teach you how to be secure in the saddle and not be easily unseated by a person on the ground. At the end of this class I will assign home-work tailored to each student for the skills you need to practice and refine.
