This class is for all of you who "wish" they had a horse. You will get a general overview of the responsibilities of having a pet of this size. Wear your old blue jeans and boots, if you happen to have them (otherwise, gym shoes are fine), because you will get a chance to do some basic riding.
TOPICS TO BE COVERED:
Grooming - tools and techniques
Learn about the various tack (bridles, saddles, etc.)
Teeth and Age
Learn to Halter, Lead, and Tie correctly
Knowing the Gaits the horse travels in
