Classes Start July 9th

Groundwork classes focus on the study of horse behavior and body language to improve your communication and understanding of the horse. Our instructors use natural horsemanship training techniques and classes are taught in a relaxed environment with small class sizes for more personalized learning. Horses and students will be under instructor supervision at all times.


Our Groundwork class is made up of four sessions, with a certification upon completion. The four sessions are designed to teach skills for communicating with horses of varying ages, breeds, temperament, and skill. The sessions are tailored to the class experience level and can include topics such as:

  • Essential Horse Safety
