Horsemanship is about much more than just learning to ride. It’s about developing and maintaining happy, healthy, and sound horses. At TES, we are committed to teaching riders to become true horsemen — both in and out of the saddle. That's why we're proud to offer our new Horsemanship Certification program. This 10-session lecture series educates riders on a range of topics that are essential to proper horse care.

From feeding to saddle fit, from first aid to hoof care, the TES Horsemanship Certification Series will teach you how to better care for your equine partners. Whether you own your own horse or aspire to one day, and regardless of your riding ability, you will benefit from the wealth of knowledge available through the program.

Each 60-minute seminar combines a classroom lecture with live demonstrations inside the TES stable. Seminars are led by experienced, professional instructors in the equine industry, and include written materials to take home. All of the TES Horsemanship Certification sessions can be purchased individually, or sign up for the entire 10-session course at a discount. Students who complete all 10 sessions will receive a certificate of completion and a free group riding lesson (or a free Evaluation if not a current TES student)!
