I took 6 classes with Libby- she is a excellent teacher. I ride boomer- he is patient and obedient to master. No issues with accepting Groupon. Good to schedule at least week before. I like to continue my riding lessons.

The Horse-Human Bond: Man’s (Other) Best Friend

You’re likely to leave the stable with a new skill and a new friend. Read on to learn more about the powerful bond between humans and horses.

Humans have been riding horses since the first bus broke down around 3,500 BC, but the full extent of the intraspecies connection is only beginning to come to light. Anecdotal stories of deep friendships between horses and humans abound, but studies suggest that horses really do form long-term bonds with humans with whom they’ve had positive encounters. In fact, horses can recognize their human friends months or even years after seeing them last.

Horses are naturally social animals, forming lifelong friendships with horses inside and outside their own families. This affable nature, combined with an impeccable sense of hearing, puts horses in a unique position to respond to human communication and even memorize human words. Trainers frequently talk in soothing tones to their horses, but much of the bonding occurs through nonverbal interaction: horses also get to know humans through daily grooming, feedings, and long, quiet rides into the sunset. Many longtime riders report feeling deeply attuned to their horses, both physically and emotionally.

About Timbermist Farm

Timbermist Farm's stately 50-acre facility sports white plank fences, verdant grounds, and an ivory stable fronted by columns. At this indoor facility, veteran instructors offer lessons to riders of all abilities, imparting knowledge gathered during nearly three decades of training, competing, and counting wooly horses just before bedtime.

The instructors show students how to steer horses in the Farm's indoor training facility, which is open year-round and heated during the winter.
