Greenhorn Group Training Class

$55 per class Plan available for $180 Purchase required to enroll

The best way to learn how horses are trained is to help train a horse.

Learn how to better understand the training process for green horses and expanding knowledge on horsemanship skills.

As a member of the Greenhorn Training Class, you will be able to work with our green horses in a combination of structured and independent environments. Greenhorns will work together to train and work young horses, as well as new green horses to prepare them for their lives as lesson horses.

Weeks will be alternating:
1) group demonstration and discussion weeks
2) private lesson sessions for review and to work on individual goals and problems.

Reason for alternation is that each topic tends to be WAY TOO MUCH to talk about to fit demonstration and hands on work all into one session.

Group Classes: $55

Alternating Fridays at 5:30pm - 7:30/8:00pm

On Group deminstration and discussion weeks our horses will be used to demonstrate a variety of concepts. Demonstrations will be at all phases of training but will relate back to the foundational work we will do for hands on the following week.

Private Classes: $45

30 Minute Sessions Alternating Fridays every half hour starting at 5:30pm

Private Lesson weeks will give every member opportunity to work on individual goals and problem solving with the training concepts and groundwork with the help of an instructor.

Group Classes

The monthly club includes group classes alternating weeks for a month.

Classes will be focused on demonstrations of skills that are foundational to horses' learning. This would be a hands on time for instructors to demonstrate as well as provide group hands on learning.

Note: Classes do not roll over from month to month and must be used the month of the membership. We are trying to encourage people to get involved on a regular basis.

Private Classes

The monthly club includes one private session on the weeks alternating the group sessions.

Private sessions are focused on individual goals and weaknesses. Whether it is a particular horse that a student struggles with or a skill they are struggling with (either that they want to work on or an instructor notices needs work).

Note: Classes do not roll over from month to month and must be used the month of the membership. We are trying to encourage people to get involved on a regular basis.

Training Labs

Training labs are the unlimited, unsupervised practice sessions that greenhorns have to work with designated and assigned horses for groundwork and basic training skills. These are opportunities to review skills and develop the repetition needed for horses and humans to learn these foundational skills.

No skill is too small to repeat and perfect!

Training labs can be booked online through the FrontDesk and a staff member will assign your horse and training task. Please book these sessions at the end of your weekly class so that we can easily assign horses and tasks.

Every training lab must be recorded in the schooling database in order to track horse and member progress to be discussed at meetings. We strongly encourage videotaping your session using our iPad stand or chest mount straps for instructional review.

Additional Learning OpportunitiesAdditional groundwork lessons and riding lessons with staff can always be purchased in order to support the work you are doing in the club and help you achieve your personal goals.

Requirements for Club Membership:

Requirements to be able to join the club and be able to do unsupervised work with horses you need to have the following understanding:

All members must have basic knowledge of groundwork skills: haltering, leading, picking up feet,

All members must obey maximum skills level limits. Not every club member will be allowed to ride or do groundwork at the same skill level. Not everyone will be working at the same level at the same time, just like how the horses won't be at the same level either. The goal is to work together as a club to make these newer and younger horses into finished products for the entire community

Members that intend to do any mounted work must be capable of posting trot and posess soft hands and understanding of leg cues. This must be evaluated beforehand in a lesson setting. Members that intend to ride must update their riding weight on FrontDesk regularly in order to be appropriately mounted.
