Physical Education Option Available to Homeschoolers and kids stuck at home doing virtual learning!
For parents who are looking for a unique way to provide physical education for their child's homeschooling/virtual learning program this winter (or anytime), please consider contacting us at Door County Horsemanship.
We are now offering opportunities for homeschooling/virtual learning students to get physical education with horses. Our program is designed for groups of 3-5 students and is a 6 lesson course (With options of continuing after the course is over) and is rain or shine. Duration of each lesson will be 1-1.5 hours long, but will depend on the horse and student needs (we ALWAYS want to end on a high note for horse and students so that we can build confidence!)
Some things students will learn and work on over the course of 6 weeks are:
physical coordination, balance and stamina during riding and handling horses with emphasis on educational development of full horse knowledge.
Horsemanship encourages responsibility, patience, respect, self-confidence, and compassion.
Lessons focus on versatile and practical riding available for a variety of age, skill level, and riding style background of students Variety of disciplines offered: Western, gymkhana games, ranch horse, reining.
Each class session includes hands on instruction: grooming, tacking, handling, and riding and/or learning to handle the horse on the ground. Other activities include equine care, nutrition, stable management, games on horseback and mind challenges (horse trivia, quizzes, word searches).
Safety is #1. Students learn in a safe and fun way on gentle, trained horses and ponies and taught by an instructor with 20+ years of experience in the equine industry showing and training horses.
Approved helmets and footwear required (helmets may be provided by facility if I have enough available). Safety checks made before every ride.
