Fall Horsemanship Schedule!

WOW, I just realize how out of day my Web page is!   Blame it on Facebook!, Facebook is easier to update and put pictures on.  So to see our summer riding photos and a few stories, go to facebook.com/ezwalkingstables.

Now for Fall, I’m looking at having the new kids come two days a week, as a an Introduction Series of lessons.  Right now I’ve got two dates, Sept 14 and 15 and Sept 21 and 22.  The Fridays, Sept 14 and 21, we will meet at 4pm and be done around 6pm.  On Saturdays, we will meet at 9am and be done at noon.  Cost will be $100/set for the 5 hours of horsemanship. These two sets will be the same lesson.  Now after complete my first and or second Set, then we can work on a day of the week to continue the lessons if you like.  Can have up to 5 kids between the ages of 7 and 99.

My riding lessons are designed to be educational, fun but safe!  Each student will have their own horse to ride but should a student need help, we will be able to help.  Now if I just had time to learn the new WordPress design and editor I would put some pictures on this post but that will have to wait for another day!

Discussing the morning plan with one of my students

My Camps are designed to be fun and educational. Each student will be assigned a horse and will ride and take care of that horse for the camp time. Plus other chores and duties that must be done for the horses.

Learning to Learn, it’s an ART!


Trails Ahead

Now that I have Face book to post pictures and short ride stories,  I’m not updated my web page as much.  But I hope to make it into an  information place so will still keep it updated.

Horses and people are not as different when it come to learning as some folks might believe.  In order to learn we must understand what it is being presented.  We have to be able to understand and have a reason to want to know it.  Now reasons can very, maybe it makes life easier, maybe it leads to better food or maybe its just fun.  If learning can touch on all those reasons, then both horse and  person will probable learn to learn better.

This summer I am going to be expanding both horses and humans minds (hopefully) with new information and understanding.  Creating desire to learn more and get out and do more.  For my own education and that of the horses and folks I come in contact with, I’m starting a new study on the Dorrance Bothers.  They were last century master Horseman who took the time needed to learn what the horse needed to learn.  They shared what they knew with the horse’s owner or rider.  They were gentle and figured things out for each horses, not using a Cookie cutter recipe to solve problems.  This is what I want to accomplish with my horses and training, both with people and horses.  Develop Relationships where the horses want to work with us and where the people gain confident that they really can have a partnership with their horse.  Not English or Western, Just Horse!

My goal has always been to have fun and help people understand horses !

Well its time for us to start some Horse Improvement Classes.   These are for friends who want to better themselves and their horses through riding and having fun.  My major themes  include confident building and “feeling” your horse.    We will do it at both my place and on the trials. I’ve had all winter to think up new stuff and now I’m ready to get started.

 

 

 

 

I have also added a new story to my story page and have some updates on a sale horse.  Plus if you know of anybody looking for a walking Mule I know of one for sale.

So Get out, and Go Have some fun with your Horses!!! Or come and have fun with some of my!

Remember,

 Laugh, Work and Ride!

A comment from one of my students the other day just about says it all.“I didn’t know  all the things I don’t Know!” (she was talking about riding)

Well that’s it for now. I might add and update more of my pages soon….. So Remember, Ride today for you might not get to tomorrow.

What do we REALLY DO

We enjoy sharing our horses with folks who are not as lucky but would love to share the love affair we all have with horses.  We do this by getting people involved with the horses.

Grooming, Riding, Cleaning, Doctoring, Loving, all in a day’s lesson.  Our training grounds is mostly the wide outdoors.  We teach riding by doing it. Going though the woods on winding trails, staying intone to your horse, relaxing, learning what to do when boggymen come calling.  All in a day’s ride.

I’ve been told, I  have just about the sweetest herd of horses around.  This is due to good training on both horses and humans.  We train both to become thinking partners and both appreciate it.  Now we always have to  have a leader, and I prefer the human to be that leader (though sometimes the horse might be the better choice).

046                If you would like to just learn about horses, ride out on trails and enjoy this beautiful place we call home, give Deb a call (745-0804).  I work with all ages and abilities.

It can be scary at any age to learn to ride and control a horse. They are big, BEAUTIFUL, powerful,  animals with a mind of their own. Our goal at EZ Walking stables is to help horses by educating their riders.

Students/New owners need support in order to obtain success with their horse partnerI want folks to be as successful with horses and have as wonderful of time as I have.  So I teach how to respect the horse and earn his respect too.  It is difficult for some people to trust a horse and even more difficult for a horse to trust them.  My plan has the horse teaching. From the horse, you learn horse patience, trust, respect and how to communicate. After the first few lessons, then you have the basics and now just need ride to perfect your communicate skills with the horse. 

On this site, we plan to provide numerous horse related help items. Since horses aren’t allow to use the Internet very often, they need your help to utilize this information. Owning a horse can be a large investment but we can make it an enjoyable and positive one.

There are cute story posted under Barn Stories

Here at EZ stables, we ride for pleasure. Everything we do with the horse is for pleasure, this includes our training. If the horse is having fun learning, then its fun for us to. Horses should not be expected to act like a robot, instead, he should be educated that working with humans can be exciting and interesting. Thus we try and develop working partnerships will all our horses and owners. This ensures that we are all having fun, and getting the most pleasure possible from our horses.

So if you want to get the most out of your horse on the trail or out for a simple pleasure ride, Deb at EZ Stables is who you should speak with. Come by the barn, see how every horse on the place is happy and wants to be with people. Horses are wonderful friends and if you want to experience, this the call or write today.

Remember Every time you are around, your horse is learning!
