Our Horsemanship 101 is perfect for those new to horses, returning after a long break or trying to overcome fear, or those who would like a brief introduction to Monty Roberts’ methods.
Now offered as a one-day course, Horsemanship 101 is also recommended for visitors and residents who would like to experience a day at Flag Is Up Farms.
Classroom discussion will provide an introduction to how horses think and behave, while practical sessions will teach you how to approach, halter, lead, groom and move safely around a horse. You will learn the basic concept behind Monty Roberts’ Dually® halter and after watching Join-Up® demonstrations, will experience a guided round pen session to feel the power of inter-species communication.
A rosette token of accomplishment* will be provided upon completing the course.
*Please note, the rosettes token does not make a statement about the holder’s status as a horse trainer and does not contribute towards certification which is only available through the Certification program.
