What is Horsemanship?
Extensive knowledge in all aspects of the horse. A person is said to have horsemanship if he/she is one who displays the ability to “read a horse,” while being able to interpret the horse's needs and understands the horse's body language. The ability to catch, halter, lead, and move a horse around, as well as safely moving, in close proximity, to a horse on the ground. Proper horsemanship insures the safety and prevents injuries to the horse, handler or others standing nearby.
Our trail ride is a traditional highlight of the semester!
Accredited English Horsemanship classes are offered for Binghamton University students. As a part of the Binghamton University Outdoor Pursuits program, South Wind Stable has designed the Horsemanship courses to give each student ample one-to-one time with our school horses. While it’s important to stress safety in all aspects of our program, we have also taken every measure to make our program fun for the students that join us.
