Children and Adult English Riding Lessons
Jessica Knox, has been involved in the horse community for over 25 years, starting off with pony club at an early age. Jessica's focus and training has been on dressage and eventing, though she has had experience in hunter/jumpers and showed on the IHSA circuit in college, where she earned a BS in Equine Management. Jessica is currently training her 3 year old off track TB, and hopes to start showing him in dressage next year and then hopefully eventing. She greatly enjoys teaching both kids and adults and believes that every lesson should be a positive experience. She also understands that everyone learns differently, so she structures her lessons based on individual needs. Jessica is very excited to become involved with Medicine Horse Program.
Contemplative/Embodied Riding Lessons
Nathan P. Lee, a clinical intern at Medicine Horse Program, is offering riding lessons that are less focused on the disciplines of horseback riding, but instead, the lessons attend to enhancing oneís attunement to the shared language of movement between horse and rider. Supported by embodied mindfulness practices, the riding lessons allow individuals to witness their experience of being in relationship with their movements, the movements of the horse, and the influence and relationship the two have with one another. The intent of the lessons is to serve as a conduit of authentic, meaningful communication expressed through the collaborative movement shared between human and horse. Nathan has an extensive background in horsemanship, and he brings his passions of body-centered-psychotherapies, the art of Aikido, and the practice of self-compassion into the lessons. Nathan is scheduled to graduate from Prescott College in May of 2012 with an MA in Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Equine Assisted Mental Health, and he has completed Level One training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
Price: $45.00 per lesson for 45 minutes (individual)
$45.00 per person per lesson for 1 1/2 hour (group of two or more)
