J Ranch teaches horsemanship:
-How to care for a horse
-How to tack a horse
-How to actually ride the horse
-How to communicate with the horse
SAFETY is our first priority. All campers must wear horseback-riding helmets when on a horse.
First, campers learn about horses on the ground for a better understanding, then they will learn horse language, how to be the leader for the horse and how to work with the horse. Campers also learn how to behave around horses; leading, grooming, tacking and untacking skills. With the campers' safety being the first priority, first part of the day is spent outside working with the horses. Water breaks throughout the morning for proper hydration to combat those hot summer days. Middle of the day is lunch break (bring your own lunch), cooling down indoors. Last part of the day is conducted indoors, learning about saddles, horse history, anatomy, horsemanship, plus arts & crafts activities. Each camper leaves with a souvenir of their horse adventure.
