Harness Your Life

Harness Your Life

Our programs are not to learn horsemanship skills. Horses will teach you about subtle communication, relationships, decision making and body language. Our nurturing environment helps children to grow and learn at a steady pace that helps to improve confidence to be life ready and job ready. 

 

This is an 8 week in term program: 

 

We offer three different school programs depending upon the age of the students participating. Please refer to our programs below designed for each age group for further information.
