Classes offered -Circle E Equestrian or perhaps YOUR Stables
Confidence through patterns & Challanges - 1 or 2 day
101- Groundwork safety for riding -This is my first base foundation class - the beginning. Designed for anyone new to groundwork/or horses-someone with a young or problem horse OR someone who knows groundwork but has a horse that is challenging them. All my ground work applies to use in the saddle-explained and shown. Focus is on groundwork being useful. At times Ellie mayhandle and demonstrate with your horse if you wish. Focus is on safety and FUN - building confidence for both horse & human!!!!
102 - Connecting the reins down to the feet- The next progressive class is 102. Ground work is more advanced and our goal is to practice effectiveness in the saddle. Enhance safety & fun. NEW Games are played and enjoyed together. Saddle time is intended after ground work is practiced and your comfortable. The second day will be adding what we learned and practicing into games, the goal is so horse can relax and also start having fun. We work on details of refinement with riding. This is a great place to get ready for shows/trailriding and practice off premises. Many times issues don't completely come out till your off premise. Getting to their mind, down to the feet -develops your relationship & extends control. Developing your feel and finesse. The little things really matter. If you find you are not comfortable riding you may practice your groundwork exercises with help to regain control while others continue on.
103 - Developing Feel & Finesse -This class is based on putting it together with feel and finesse to be effective as a leader. Focused on details of refinement with expanded riding. Must be able to walk-trot and preferable canter. Getting to their mind, down to the feet - develops your relationship and extents control for your safety. Mutual respect - built on foundation, advancing to get the horse soft in the ribcage & between your reins.
Despooking and Trail preparation -The title says it all. This class will be fun and challenging. Prior class or lessons is a prerequisite - for effectiveness on what we will be doing.
