Stable Management & Horse Knowledge.
Having students participate in day, week or month long camp allows an instructor to address the holistic approach to horsemanship. Beyond mounted capabilities, it is a chance to educate a rider on care, stable skills, and overall knowledge of the horse. But because it’s camp, let’s make it fun to learn. Here we will be offering suggestions on preparing units of knowledge in a fun, informative and organized way. 4-H Horse Manuals, the Junior Master Horseman series from the AQHA and Pony Club Manuals all offer good starting points for educational materials and are great supplements to a camp’s curriculum. Here we will offer an easy to follow curriculum with units being added constantly. We have included a plan for our scheduled units.
