A week with these amazing creatures! Learn to feed, groom, and saddle & bridle a horse. Start the week by working on your basic riding skills (mounting/dismounting, walking, and halting) and build on the basics to master additional skills so that you can go on a trail ride or demonstrate your skills in a horse show by the end of the week. Learn how to clean stalls, hose down a horse -- everything horse! Mount up for some fun!
