Camp Programs

Learning about horses and ourselves through

Horse Centred curriculum and Equine Assisted Learning.

This combination creates a program where the participants learn and improve their horse skills, while also learning and improving their leadership skills.

 

What does the Horse-Centred curriculum teach?

This groundwork-based curriculum encourages students to deepen their understanding of equine behaviour and communication, developing practical ground handling and training skills.

 

What are the goals for the curriculum?

There are four levels designed to accommodate various groundwork approaches, with the goal of creating well-rounded trainers who can choose and use methods while prioritizing partnership and the horse’s well-being.

 

How is the groundwork progression structured?

The HorseCentered curriculum consists of three progressive Levels: Red, Pink, White and Gold. Each level contains twelve objectives, covering equine behaviour and training philosophy as well as hands-on ground handling. 

For which students are the Horse-Centered Levels appropriate?

 

This curriculum is appropriate for students with the maturity required to learn basic training theory – typically aged 8 and up. Riding ability is not required, but students must be physically capable of handling a horse on the ground independently.

 

Equine Assisted Learning?

 

Equine-assisted learning is a fancy way of saying learning with horses. Our horses work with their human partners, creating a partnership, in teams of two people and one horse, the navigate obstacles and challenges. Learning life skills, communication, and social cues this helps to improve leadership and personal empowerment.
