About this course:

A fun and comprehensive three-hour weekly course including both horseback riding and horsemanship (the care of horses), taught in a safe, welcoming environment. Each week students spend approximately 30 minutes tacking their horse, 60 minutes riding, 60 minutes in classroom lecture, and 30 minutes untacking. Students will learn to tack—halter, groom, and saddle their horse. Instruction will be provided on English-style riding through a series of eight consecutive weekly sessions. For safety reasons, beginning instruction may take place in a Western-style saddle. The program is open to students of all level of experience, including people who have never ridden a horse. The first meeting is a ground only session on safety and horsemanship. The 60-minute seminars will consist of classroom lectures and live demonstrations with horses. Topics include conformation basics, saddle and bridle fit and function, preventative health care, emergency first aid, nutrition, grooming, hoof care, and much more. All sessions are taught by experienced professionals in the equine industry. Classes are taught on well trained school horses at the Traditional Equitation School (TES) at the world-famous Los Angeles Equestrian Center. TES is the only British Horse Society approved training center on the West Coast. Participants must be at least 16 years old. Maximum weight is 190 pounds.
