Lessons at Oak Meadows are focused on comprehensive horsemanship - from routine care, grooming and handling to riding and groundwork games.
We teach a balanced seat in both Western and English disciplines, and incorporate bareback work to improve the student's seat and balance. Our lessons are centered around the principles of natural horsemanship as taught in the Parelli Natural Horsemanship program. Students will learn to build a partnership with their horse using the principles of Love, Language and Leadership. The focus of every lesson is not only to help the student improve in his or her horsemanship skills, but also to enjoy the experience of working and playing with horses.
Weekly lesson fees of $35 for group lessons and includes the use of the horse, tack and grooming equipment. The student is asked to provide an ASTM/SEI certified riding helmet and shoes with a right-angle heel. School helmets are available for use until the student is able to obtain one for him/herself. Monthly fee for group lessons are $140. Private lessons are $45 per session
Our School Horses are specially selected for their dispositions and "Horsenalities", and go through extensive training before earning the badge of School Horse! We teach each student how to communicate with the horse, and how to recognize the horse's communication back to them. Questions by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by texting 256-783-7695.
