Tots and Parents
This is a fun class for parent and child to work as a team, as they gain an understanding of how horses can become our friends for life! Our goal is for our toddler students to learn the foundations of safety, care and communication with horses, and for our parent students to become confident communicators and leaders, who they will be able to step into the shoes of (well supervised!) handlers — and ground support, when it comes to riding! — as their pair progresses through our curriculum!
The first four sessions are all grounded; we then start to sprinkle in some riding as well!
While encouraging regular attendance, since we have found that continuity facilitates learning at the deepest level, we also leave some wiggle room for a few absences: the 5 pack expires after 8 weeks and the 10 pack after 14 weeks.
What our participants say…
“My daughter Julia is three years old and goes to the Tots and Parents class! My wife, Julia and I are simply in wonder for what Elizabeth and Giorgia do with our child and with the horses: this has been one of the most inspiring and special experiences of my life, and I am sure it is a treasure that will accompany my daughter for the rest of her life.

Note! Since they are both Italian-speaking, as is our instructor Giorgia, their lessons are in Italian. Yours don’t have to be 😛
How to enroll
If this program sounds like it’s for you, then let’s talk! We always want to hear from our potential students before they officially enroll, to make sure they are in the right place and also to direct them to the most fitting Hatha Equus entry point. So…
