Day 5: Horsemanship or Trail Ride
Have you ever tried T-Touch? The horses do so much for us, so let’s give them something back! We can teach you the Tellington Jones touch. We will show you how you can help a nervous horse become relaxed and calm. Understanding how to create the steps towards a more confident horse, how to take away the horses pain, how to keep the horses back in good shape and condition and also how to make the horse more focused.
After this we can try a little horsemanship and also riding bareback (the entirety of the program is around 4 hours). If you are concerned about riding bareback you can just have a little go in the round pen and afterwards tack up the horse before heading out.
