Are you an esteemed alum of the Academy’s popular Horse Whisperers program? Do you want to dive deeper into the world of natural horsemanship? Then this popular and collaborative program with Old Sawmill Ranch is for you! Designed for advanced riders, Advanced Horse Whisperers focuses on horse handling skills that allow students to build an in-depth working relationship with horses. Through daily instruction participants will develop lateral flexion skills, work on core strength and participate in Horse Olympics. During our first week, we will be spending two nights in a fully stocked back country cabin, where we will learn how to care for our horses in new surroundings. Our second week will consist of an exciting double overnight on the ranch and special horse shows at the San Miguel Basin Fair and Rodeo. Additionally, this special two week-long edition of this popular program will offer students the opportunity to get more time in the saddle and on the trail! During our time together, there will be swimming, picnics and pasture rides to bring us back to the days when horses were a vital part of our own existence.
*All participants must have cowboy boots in order to work with the horses
