This program for the adult who would like to spend more time at
Woodland and with horses, but cannot commit to a certain time
every week.  This is an excellent program which will teach you
how to groom and correctly care for a horse.  After your training
session, you can choose your own schedule to groom and
spend quality time with the school horses.

You will be able to groom the horse in the barn or, if possible,
take the horse to grass while you groom.  What a great deal for
everyone involved.

The Details...For every five hours of grooming time you will
receive a coupon good for one extra lesson, not to be used as
payment for your regular class.  Your instructor will help you
select another class of an appropriate level.
