How to Catch a Horse...

and all the other important stuff about
equine care, handling & management

Not all classrooms have 4 walls

If you weren't born into it, the horse world can be a tough space to enter. Horses are large complex animals who require a lot of knowledge and understanding to handle and manage. 

Accessibility and opportunity has always been a priority for us here at Equi Evolution. We want more people to learn about and have the chance to experience and work with horses!

 

Through the Eyes of a Horse teaches participants the ins and outs of horsemanship from a compassionate and mindful approach. Learn about handling & leading, anatomy, grooming, nutrition, first aid, and so much more!

How to Catch a Horse

How to Catch a Horse is a program specifically focused on teaching the basics of safely handling and managing horses. There is so much more to horses than riding, but most lesson programs do not offer essential training for how to work with these animals on the ground. This 6-week course sets a strong foundation of equine care and includes everything from haltering & leading to communication, anatomy, vital signs, nutrition, and general care practices. The core principles of this program are based on compassionate care and teach practices that center around acknowledging autonomy and partnership rather than a more traditional dominance theory approach. Participants will learn to consider how our  interactions are perceived and interpreted through the eyes of a horse, while also being mindful of how our own energy influences the world around around us.
