Brek-n-Ridge Farm’s HORSE-A-CULTURE 2019
The Goal this summer at B-n-R is to spend each week together, riding to develop thinking skills and become riders able to ride off property, in the B-n-R fields, and to enjoy ourselves at our small local competitions. Our lessons will include trail rides, BBQ’s, drill team practice, horsemanship and position, trailering skills, horse and equipment stable care, preparations for off property rides and horse shows and our scheduled Dressage Clinics with Maryal Barnett and auditing or riding in the Vanessa Voltman Clinics will be included in the Lesson Programs and found on a calendar coming soon!
Join Andrew and I to share with you the joys and process of riding, no detail too small and no goals to large. We will have fun, learn a lot and teach our horses to become better riding partners, better trained, and you as a rider, a safer equestrian.

ACCURACY – Over time horse professionals have determined methods of riding and handling horses for the safety and fun for all. Learn to ask your horse the right questions. How should you be teaching your horse what to do? For you, and for your horse, learn to decide how your state of mind and your accuracy can make a difference in the riding relationship with your horse.
BALANCE – Ask your horse to stay in balance and observe why this will help the horse and the rider stay safe. Learn how and when to create balance to make a difference in your riding relationship with your horse.
CORRECTNESS – Learn how correctness, and conformity of tried and true methods in the handling of all horse decisions will make a difference in your riding relationship when you are by yourself or when riding in a group. Learn how to avoid problems.
Teaching the ABC’s in two very different summer horseback riding programs. Brek-n-Ridge lesson horses are available for students, or for those of you that wish to ride twice a day. Ask for the special twice a day fee.
Please reserve early, limited availability.
The Horse-a-Culture Program in 2018 & 2019 include a similar learning curve and will be followed in 2019 to insure the long term easy -to- learn consistency and conformity for safe and fun riding.
