The 90-minute Introduction to horses and Horsemanship class walks new riders through the skills necessary to work with horses. Topics include interacting with horses, walking, grooming, tacking, and playing training games. The class is a preriding, nonmounted class; it does not include riding.
The introductory lesson hones English-style riding skills, such as mounting, walking, trotting, steering, and stopping, during small-group sessions with up to three students. The main focus is on control, rider position, and how to be a balanced and gentle rider.
As horses frolic in the open air and nuzzle each other in the fields, Denise Berry-Hanna draws upon master-trainer certification from the Certified Horsemanship Association to oversee a skilled team of instructors. Pupils of all ages learn about English–style riding with an emphasis on safety. Students ride year-round in an indoor arena or on an outdoor riding arena with sand and limestone footing. Trainers focus on English–style riding; the farm also has a large dressage arena, a cross-country field, and a stadium jumping area for advanced riders. A summer camp for kids aged 6–15 gives youngsters a warm-weather activity other than taking No Running signs to the Supreme Court, and horses board at the farm in warm, hay-filled stalls or on the rolling meadows.
