LESSON DESCRIPTIONS:

Introduction to Horses:

This class is for ALL first time clients at Potts Performance Horses, LLC where we can establish which level you belong in.  For those remaining in this level, it will focus on the fundamentals of horse care which will include nutrition, grooming, saddling and unsaddling, anatomy, proper care of horse tack as well as the parts of the saddle, bridle, etc.  This class also includes riding time in the saddle. 

Intermediate Horsemanship:

This class is for those riders that have tested out of Introduction to Horses.  It will focus on taking that next step to building a more confident rider.  Here you will learn how to improve your horsemanship position while developing a better communication between you and your horse.  Your instructor will help teach you how to correctly position all parts of your horse's body for all gaits; walk, trot, lope and back.  You will also work on maneuvering through simple obstacle courses using minimal cues.

Advanced Horsemanship:

This class is for those riders that have tested out of Intermediate Horsemanship.  It will focus on perfecting the learned intermediate skills.  This class is for the serious rider that wishes to compete someday and even for those who do not, but hope to improve and perfect their communication skills with their horse.  This class will not only help you demonstrate advanced body positioning of your horse through different gaits, but will also include guiding your horse through advanced obstacle courses as well as horsemanship patterns.
