respect * confidence * responsibility * trust
You must earn your horse's respect.
You have to have confidence in yourself to make friends with an animal that outweighs you by 1,000 pounds.
You need to be confident that you have the ability to communicate to your horse that YOU are in charge.
You need to listen and pay attention to signs and signals your horse gives you.
You need to learn to trust your horse, and your horse needs to learn to trust you.
At the Double L Ranch, we teach riding with a focus on complete horsemanship.
Our professional staff has been trained in all phases of horsemanship.
We are all committed to working with our students to reach their goals.
We have top-quality lesson horses, for those of you who don't have a horse.
Give us a call. We are looking forward to enhancing your riding experience!
