Heart & Hooves Horsemanship
H & H Youth Horsemanship Program
The Heart and Hooves Horsemanship Youth Program strives to engage a youth’s passion for horsemanship from the beginning. Gaining knowledge is essential to becoming safe and confident with horses. Learning why horses do the things they do, understanding how they communicate with their humans, and having effective training exercises allows the youth to create and develop natural horsemanship skills that will last a lifetime. The confidence that is gained will shine through in every part of the youth’s life and inspire healthy growth and development. Youth Program activities will be designed with youth learning styles in mind. The pace and content of each lesson will be tailored to the age as much as possible. Parents are encouraged to be a part of their child’s horsemanship journey with regular progress updates and skills to be practiced between lessons or classes. Many have asked how young their child can begin to participate in the Heart and Hooves Horsemanship Youth Program. Every child grows and develops their ability to learn and productively participate, in a group safely, at a different pace. The skill level of the horse that the child will be using is also a consideration. The youth program will focus on children that are ages 8 and older. However, if parents feel their younger child is ready to engage productively in learning this may be available with further discussions and modifications.

Private Lessons offer a focused and individualized approach to establishing a solid foundation of natural horsemanship skills one hour at a time. Private lessons will establish a foundation of horsemanship skills on the ground prior to progressing to riding.
