Horsemanship Experience

Every time we’ve ever posted about our Internship Program, people tell us, they wish they could take off from their jobs/lives for 8 weeks. Our solution was simple. Add a program just for those folks, who’d like to immerse themselves in a daily clinic setting.  Thus was born our Horsemanship Experience Program.  We are happy to customize an experience for you if our program doesn’t fit the bill.
