Instructor: Holly Beth Mornay
Holly has been teaching horseback riding for 12 years. She specializes in teaching students of all ages how to understand the horse using behavioral science, positive reinforcement, and teaching body language. She is adept at meeting every student where they are in their horseback riding journey and helping them progress at the pace that's right fr them. She always strives to have her students experience the joy and wonder that comes with working with horses. Holly studied equine management at Becker College in 2017. She offered her services as a freelance riding instructor and horse trainer for 2 years, simultaneously taught at a non-profit in Charlton for 8 years, and has since settled as the head riding instructor at Harmony Horse Stables since 2019.

Course Description:
Meet the horses where they live, learn their different characteristics, and get a close look at their everyday lives. Children will learn that having a relationship with a horse means being responsible and committed and requires caring for their daily needs. The benefits of involving children in the world of horses, no matter what the age, go beyond entertainment and recreational value.

Life in the Barn is a fun, hands-on experience where you'll get to ride one of our amazing horses here at Harmony Horse Stables. Not only will you get to hop on one of our wonderful school horses and learn the basics of riding, you'll also get a sneak peak into what it takes to care for horses, how to get them ready for a ride and how to take care of them afterward.

What to Wear/Bring
Long pants and warm clothes if it's chilly; this course will take place mostly outside, but under a roof. Dress according to temperature
