Spring Break camp and Community Ed classes are just around the corner! Adult and Child classes available! Mention Newhorse.com and get a special introductory rate to lessons and kids camp! My program is unlike any other program in the twin cities area. I have been perfecting and developing it for a many years now. This program is more than showing up, jumping on a horse and riding around in circles for 45 min.First of all, it's about having FUN!! It's also about learning everything you need to know to be a confident, self sufficient rider. We start by learning how our horse communicates with us and how to truly understand it's cues. We bulid a strong, balanced seat by perfecting our bareback riding skills. We move on to different types of saddles and challenge ourselves each and everytime we come to the barn. We ride through rugged terrain, arenas with no walls, but don't worry we take our time and start out slow. ***
I take pride in working with horses with behavioral issues as a trainer. Most of my more advanced students help me in this process and learn about the mind set of these horses with agression issues. Buckers, biters, kickers, halter pullers, horses who try to roll on you, or anything else they can do to scare the mess out of you to get them to put you away. It's incrediably rewarding to see these horses calm down and remember what is like to be a happy horse again. My students love being a part of it and look forward to the next "Crazy" horse I bring in.Right now our project is Scooter. ***
Kids in my program learn about leadership skills, communication, problem solving, teamwork, basic life skills that will help them when they are older. They help me teach camps, community ed, they help new students, young or old learn new things about horses. It's really rewarding to watch how well these kids develop so quickly and some just explode out of their shells.***
My favorite quote from this summer, "Maria, this program is amazing. My children have learned more in 6 months in your program than they have in the 3 years at their last barn. We cannot thank you enough." This is why I do what I do. ***
Give me a chance to explore a world unlike no other, a world with horses. You won't be disappointed.
