The benefits of horseback riding are numerous and proven, giving participants the chance to learn new skills while strengthening your core. The connect with a horse is not as well know but powerful none-the-less. Horses provide a natural way to build trust and give honest feedback regarding your personal feelings and emotions.
YOUR EXPERIENCE INCLUDES:
Participate in activities such as herd observation, horse handling, grooming, longeing, or other ground based activities. These ground based exercises help establish a partnership connection with your horse while also decreasing stress and anxiety.
Additionally, a PATH certified instructor will guide you through tacking your horse and the basics of horseback riding at the walk, trot and canter. Each riding lesson can be adapted for the participant’s specific needs and abilities.
Schedule to bring 5-10 veterans for a 3 hour field trip. Experience a few ground based exercises, grooming, tacking and finish off with a short riding lesson. Contact Mane Stream today to set up your Field Trip.
