EQUH 254 - Natural Horsemanship: Harmony With Your Horse I

3 Credit(s)
The primary objective of this course will be to take the skills and knowledge learned in EQUH 155  and EQUH 252  and further develop these skills so that the horse and the human achieve positive reflexes. Students will progress to using a higher level of communication on the ground, and see more of the relationship from ground to saddle. In the saddle, students will get harmony with the horse and gain knowledge of a horse’s self-carriage and impulsion. The student will learn impulsion programs and the different patterns of different gaits. Students will also learn about the importance of “seat connection” while riding a horse and the importance of rein and feet connection. In addition to mastery of the theory and ideology of natural horsemanship, students must also demonstrate their competency and mastery of covered techniques by their correct application of skills sets with their horse, both on the ground and under saddle. Students will demonstrate their understanding of course material via class participation, written field and research reports, and examinations.

Prerequisite(s): Acceptance into Natural Horsemanship program, and EQUH 252 ; or c/i.
