Building Leadership
Thursdays, beginning Sept. 7
2- 3:30 PM
Ages 10+  

Leadership. What a big idea that is interpreted many ways. In this course, we will partner with horses to explore what it means for you to lead. Beauty, Riley, and Snippet will help you explore how you communicate, how you gain trust and purpose, and how you learn from your experiences. Let the horses help you understand yourself and others better as we learn to lead. 

Building Leadership Syllabus

Please note: This class does NOT include any riding, only ground work with horses.

*Please note: it is important to make as informed a decision as possible when choosing your student's Community Resource classes. Most locations will allow a student to drop a class after one meeting, at no charge if it wasn't a good fit for the student, but not all. Some classes plan ahead based on the number that have signed up and have purchased materials, hired teachers, etc. and there might be a fee for class time or materials given to the student if the student drops after one or two meetings. The school cannot pay for classes that students do not complete, so choose wisely; if you do not take the class off of your student's schedule by the deadline, you may be asked to pay for the class time incurred prior to dropping the class.
