Below are additional classes offered by SRRC; if you are interested in taking a class, please contact the office for pricing and scheduling.
Tack Up Lesson
SRRC is now offering group or individual one hour tack-up lessons for beginners as often as possible. We believe in horsemanship, not just horseback riding. A very important component of horsemanship is understanding the equipment you are using on any given horse: both how it is put on, and how and why it works. The tack-up lessons will allow time both for demonstration of the equipment that we use, and hands on practice with someone standing by for instruction and assistance.
General grooming and equipment used for grooming will also be taught in the tack-up lesson. And, of course, as we are very safety conscious, techniques for keeping both you and your horse safe will be taught so that everyone is safe and comfortable during the grooming and tacking-up procedures.
Please call ahead or visit the office to schedule your lesson.
Horsemanship classes are a terrific way to get acquainted with horses! This is a great class for beginners or people who are curious about horses.
Horsemanship Classes are offered each month for beginners. Proper horse care techniques are taught and practiced to improve knowledge of horsemanship. An in-depth instruction into handling horses, grooming, equine nutrition, equine first aid and stall maintenance are covered and practiced. Students are given more advanced instruction and more responsibility as they gain experience and knowledge.
