Practice Horsemanship first from the ground and then in the saddle each day as we work through the basic skills all aspiring horsewomen and men need.

What is Horsemanship?

Horsemanship is a skillset and knowledge base that allows humans to safely and beneficially partner with horses in a way that enhances the lives of both species. At Riding 4 Life, we are passionate about ensuring that our clients understand the most fundamental parts of this skillset and how to apply it for the best possible experience for both horse and handler/rider.

"Horsemanship demands our complete participation – BODY, MIND, and SOUL - and as humans, we can’t just “whisper” our way through it. In fact, I still cringe whenever I hear the term ‘horse whisperer’. It conjures enchanted and unlikely notions of a mystical experience with horses made complete only by the latest magical stick that serves as a Rosetta stone like talisman. While great tools and equipment are definitely worthwhile, they are all worthless until you come back down to earth and get a handle on the most important resource you already have – YOU!" -Leann Manuel
