Natural Horsemanship Program For Kids
Vaquera ranch is proud to offer the long awaited natural horsemanship program for kids. Here kids will learn all about horses, from basic horse psychology, horse care, groundwork using natural horsemanship methods, to riding. Although kids will get the most out of the program, if they complete all 12 lessons outlined below, I will also give individual or single lessons, or weekend courses. Kids are encouraged to bring their own horse, in this case, longer sessions can also be scheduled. If you have any specific request, I will gladly accomodate this. If you are interested, or have any questions about this program, please call me on 512 5860991
Who is this horsemanship program for?
This horsemanship program is especially designed for children aged 10 and up, however I am not stuck on age, this is just a guideline, and each parent will have to decide whether the program is suitable for the child. Younger children are also welcome, I will adjust the program to their ability level. I do also gladly work with children with special needs, be it a learning disorder, autism, or down syndrome, or otherwise mentally challenged kids. Tons of research, and my own experience has shown, that working with horses has a great impact especially on special needs children. It builds their confidence, develops overall muscle tone, and provides stimulation both mentally and physically, which greatly helps overall development. I am not a therapeutic riding instructor, but as a mom of 7 kids, some with learning disorders, on the autism spectrum, as well as other more severly challenged kids, I have experienced first hand just how healing a horse can be in any way. My horsemanship program is flexible enough to fit any kid in any situation, I am convinced, that everyone can get something out of the program.
