Horsemanship Enrichment Program (includes riding)
This program has been developed after years of teaching riding lessons and students requesting a lesson that was more in depth. It is truly unique and introduces people to horses to people in the authentic nature. This means that all students will get to know their horse in the pasture, barn and arena. Each setting requires something different from the horse and from the student. It is a beautiful way to connect with a horse on the ground and in the saddle. Here is what you can expect from your classes:
Connecting with horses through self discovery
Creating and understanding authenticity
Understanding communication and body language
Understanding energy and how to use it with horses
Creating connection with horses
Developing confidence on your horse
Expanding your horizons
Learning to release old stories and remain in the present
All classes move with your individual needs, our goal is to create strong, authentic relationships between horse and person. This is the key to understanding how to connect with a horse under saddle.
Classes may be purchased individually or in a series of ten. Individual classes are 90 minutes long - 150.00 each Class series - Ten 90 minutes classes - 1250.00 Classes may not be cancelled and are booked upon payment
Personal Coaching Session
Coaching sessions are beautiful sessions with a horse and person. If you are exploring new paths, wanting to get "unstuck" in the pattern you are in or just want a fresh point of view, we can assist you. You will be working with Jenny and one or more horses as you are guided through exercises to deepen your awareness, find clarity, explore new directions and refresh your spirit. NO RIDING will take place so ANYONE can participate without the fear of riding. Your session is always private and structured based on individual goals. It is a truly eye-opening and heartwarming experience to work with horses in this setting. Contact us to set up your initial session.
Rates Start at $150.00 for 90 minutes, Session packages include discounts.
Somatic Riding Experience
Have you always wanted to know more about the relationship of the horse and rider? Have you been a rider for a while, not at all or even just a few times and not feel "connected" to the horse? If you answered "yes" to either of these questions this class will teach you how to find a balance between your mind, body and spirit as you join with a horse on the ground and on the horses back. This class DOES NOT require anyone to have previous horse experience. This class focuses on the horse and rider connection and not the traditional riding lesson elements such as; heels down, eyes up or quiet hands. There is no pressure to perform on your horse, this is a beautiful class that helps you connect, join and understand how horses and people connect and ride in unity. Join me for a relaxing, educational and deeply enriching time.
Class Rates - 150.00 per 90 minute private class.
This class is for all riders feeling that they are missing something in their riding connection with the horse. We begin with an evaluation on the ground with a horse of your choice or one that has been mutually selected with Jenny. We identify areas of unclear connection and/or communication through exercises on the ground and in the saddle. You and your horse will come away with a clear understanding about how to communicate and come together on the ground and under saddle. Begin to speak your horses language, join up on the ground and in the saddle and have more happy days with less frustration.
Class Rates - 150.00 per 90 minute private class.
ALL NEW STUDENTS MUST COMPLETE WAIVERS PRIOR TO THEIR FIRST CLASS. By having everything completed prior to class, you save your time to work with horses and not in the office filling out paperwork. Please read them in their entirety.
