One of the highlights of our educational programs are our horsemanship classes. Current trainer, Jim McDonald, leads enthusiastic classes in learning to cope with problems by using the horse’s own system of herd dynamics and interaction with the goal of achieving a more rewarding relationship for both the horse and the handler.
GEC also offers horseback riding lessons with our in-house trainers for all ages and experience levels. We can help you reach your goals with our wide variety of quality horses to meet all riders needs whether its: pleasure riding / trail competitions eventing dressage hunter / jumper special needs / therapeutic.
