4 day Horsemanship Program

Getting to know and better understanding of horses and the work around them is the aim of this program. As we deal with them in caretaking situations and on the paddocks we will get more and more comfortable around them. You observe and help Luis working a new horse in the roundpen, you get to know the tools and skills to shoe a horse, watching and helping. You will go on 3 -4 hour rides and have exercises on the paddock.
