LESSONS with Samantha Harvey

 

Private lessons are available Monday-Friday with flexible scheduling; weekends by special appointment. Lessons are 1 hour, on your own horse and range from $50 (4-H, Pony Club), $65-$70 depending on the level of the student.  If you use our lesson horse session is $65.  A 24 hour notice cancellation is appreciated, otherwise a 50% lesson fee is charged for the skipped session.

TEC's facilities include: Dressage arenas, 100 x 200 jumping arena, 100 x 100 gaming arena, beginner trails, a 10 acre infield, two 60' round pens and a conditioning track. (No covered or indoor arenas.)

 

GROUND WORK:  Ideas for how to improve your horse's respect, trust and offer clear communication before you ever mount up.  Learn how to teach your horse to "try" and become mentally participative for the upcoming ride.  Have unwanted behavioral issues?  Learn how to assess and properly interpret your horse's behavior, then learn the "tools" on how to influence a change both mentally and physically.

RIDING:  Everything from anatomical discussions, clarifying why, what and how you use your aids, understand what your horse is doing and why, etc.  All riders encouraged from novice riders to advanced.  Sam has ridden and taught in multiple English (Dressage, Three Day Eventing, Jumpers, Endurance, pleasure) and Western (ranch work, cutting, reining, reined cow horse, ) disciplines over the years.  She has even spent time working with young horse prep for future racehorses.

ASSESSMENT:  Not sure of "what to do next" with your horse?  Bring your horse for a one session assessment (ground work and/or riding) for an evaluation and some ideas in how to proceed with your horse .  Not sure if the equipment you are using is appropriate or fits?  Many topics can be covered.

Vacationing RideR:  For those riders who will be vacationing in the Sandpoint area and are looking to not miss out on "time in the saddle" please contact Sam to schedule a customized program during your vacation.
