Canham Farm Horse Rescue Horsemanship Classes

Do you want to learn about horses and their behavior? Are you a new horse owner? Or have you just purchased or adopted a horse and are struggling to cope?

If the answer to any of the above questions is Yes, then Canham Farm Horse Rescue can help. Our Horsemanship Program is a hands-on class for children (over 12) and adults, who either have little or no experience with horses, want to hone their horsemanship skills or develop a better relationship with their horse.

These classes aim to help you get to know horses better through understanding their behavior, and learning to read their body language, as well as understanding how your body language effects them. All proceeds from our horsemanship classes go to our rescue horses.

Horsemanship Classes Include:

Safety on the ground
  • Groundwork for beginners
  • How to read and understand horse behavior
