Lessons are taught by a Second Level Certified Centered Riding Instructor with over 35 years of equine education experience.This education is combined with Natural Horse Communication,often termed;Natural Horsemandship. If one chooses to become involved with horses, they must realize that they will need to learn to lanquage of Equine. Every movement that a horse makes has meaning, thus, as a herd of two, every movement a human makes has meaning to the horse. We focus on developing a strong partnership with the horse which involves trust, respect, empathy, patience, humor, love and dignity. A foundation of ground education of the horse and human ensures that the horse trusts the human and knows that, as the horses leader, the human will keep the horse safe. This idea is imperative in a horse's mind. Once the ground foundation is understood, anything is possible! The ground foundation also educates the horse how to separately move the front end, be soft laterally in the neck and shoulders, ioslate the barrel and back, and isolate the hind end. This creates a soft, supple, light horse. Mounted education is based on classical dressage and the four basics of Centered Riding, allowing a rider to be soft, secure and centered, with a deep seat and body that follows and allows the horse to move, with soft eyes and correct breathing. Every individual(horse and human) learns differently and educational lessons are specialized to each individuals needs. This style of education and learning teaches many life lessons such as patience, focus, multi-tasking,recognizing and controlling emotions,recognizing body communication,centering and grounding, creativity, living in the moment,confidence, responsibility, and many other life skills that can be helpful for children and adults. There is a lovely lighted and airy indoor arena and many trails.The horses live in a natural environment with large paddocks and run-ins. Stalls are available. This education can be utilized for any equine disipline. Focus is on safety, fun, creativity. All aspects of equine knowledge is included in the lesson program including learning the horse, inside and out; first aid, recognizing illness and lameness, farm management. Private, semi-private and group lessons are available.Camps are also offered during school vacations and during the summer. Lessons can be learned on Jovita Farm horses, you can trailer your horse in or I am available to come to you and your horse. Please remember, horses do not misbehave. They may never have learned what they are being asked to do, they may be getting conflicting signals or communication from the human, they may be in pain or have an ill fitting saddle or bridle. A horse is true and mirrors the human. I welcome you to contact me so we can chat and see if I can offer you a new and exciting chapter in your life or help you with you or your horses challenges.
