Dear Wandah, I really would like my daughter to ride but she is nervous about horses. How can I help her with this?

 

What an awesome question! Horses are large creatures weighing over 1,200 pounds sometimes and can be ominous to campers. Our riding program is geared towards campers who have and have not ridden before. We like to take it slow and start with a safety chat before the campers get near our horses. We also take it slow when mounting the horses and walk the campers through the process. If your camper is nervous about HBR send us a note and we can make sure we walk her through the process slowly and help her become comfortable around them.
