Ironstone Farm Horsemanship Course

Ironstone Farm's Horsemanship Course offers an overview of the basics of equine understanding, care and management.  

 

The course is a prerequisite for apprentice instructors at Ironstone Farm preparing for a Massachusetts Instructors license, and an elective for others interested in expanding their knowledge of horses beyond riding. It is taught by a team of Ironstone Farm staff members who bring varied expertise and perspective for a dynamic program. It will also teach students about the practices of Ironstone Farm - a successful equine facility since 1960. 


Classes will be split between lecture and outdoor hands-on activities.
