The Great Lakes Stables Horsemanship Program
Great Lakes Stables Horsemanship program is designed for people who want to spend time with a horse without the riding component and that is encouraged here. One on one sessions ensure that clients learn and receive information about themselves and their equine partner. They can learn to read each others signals without feeling pressured by their peers, we welcome family and friends to join in on a session!
Horses help us to connect spiritually within ourselves, they can help with overcoming stress, trauma, anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD etc. and the every day hassles that can affect how we communicate with the horse. By spending time with horses, we allow many negative emotions and experiences to alleviate from within ourselves, it helps to develop a more positive attitude which improves life and your overall relationship with the horse, our equine partner.
* Horse Management Skills: Being responsible for another creature that we bond with, helps to develop motivational skills, self learning and courage. We will learn about the care and knowledge that is involved with keeping our horses happy.
* Grooming: Outside in the fresh air while touching and sharing a moment with a horse creates a calming tranquil feeling inside us. We will learn about brushes and how they work, why its important to groom our horses for more than just riding purposes and we will enjoy just spending time with a horse.
* Obstacle course: This activity helps to build confidence and leadership skills, not only does your horse have to learn to trust you through the obstacle course but you must trust yourself to get through some of the challenges present on course. All will be done on the ground.
* Natural Horsemanship: Inspired by the way of the horse, we will be looking at how horses communicate with each other and how to achieve "talking" in the way a horse understands. These activities are inspired by Parelli and Rick Gore, they help us to further our bond with our equine partner to create an ever lasting bond.
