Education is a big part of what we do! From offering local educational seminars and clinics, to taking the show on the road. Topics go from nutrition and training to wellness clinics and riding seminars. Saddle fitting clinics, and fun riding “games” held at our local forest.

This is the first of a series, we will start covering the basics, how far we get will depend upon how many attend and questions or situations we encounter. Adults only, not a kid friendly class Session 2 will build on what we cover in session 1, it is not a repeat of the same information Each session - $30 to attend $10 for current volunteers that work one shift a week.
