Soft Touch Horsemanship The Mind Body Connection  

~~By God's Directions.  This is His Program--not ours!~~






Rose's Riding Lessons are with a PURPOSE --YOU!  See CONTENTS STH


Recognize hazards/problems, and conquer.

Become a natural, relaxed, confident rider, complete as one --with the horse.

 Our Fresh Start process seems slow to start, however, we guarantee that you will surpass traditional riders quickly as they may be riding a canter or jumping 2' 6"         --way too soon.

 KNOW --You will not have as many accidents or falls as traditionally taught riders --because you will know HOW TO take care of yourself, not just looking like a plastic show rider.  You will know more about your relationship with your horse in mind, body. and more!

 Rose had the reputation of making a tough horses look easy. She started teaching riders in 1972, and explored all options of the business of horses' --which she disliked.   So, she dedicated herself to helping people learn better skills with appreciation for what's between the rider's hands, legs, and the misunderstood horse!  Our concern was changing for human comfort and understanding --while not abusing the horse.

1982, Rose's program developed to introducing riding from scratch.  Teaching what she had learned was critical for a person to learn --before trotting or cantering, jumping etc.  Rose called this process actual 'learning experiences' as her 'beginner program'.

When an 'A circuit' Show Rider came to her --to simply develop her legs, since she had not ridden for a few years, Rose gave her that same 'beginner program'.  On completion of our four intense classes --this rider stated:

"I think I might take this program again --as a 'Refresher Program'.  Also, I do not think you should call this your 'beginner program' because it might chase a better riding client away."  1984

Rose has explored all program possibilities --with great client success, including:

Horse Camp [40 hrs.],  Horse Fever, [90hrs.]

Then, Rose started working with at-risk youth & teen, team-building and more.  Her programs excelled for stress Reduction, Mental Health etc., Brain Injury, MS, Parkinson's Disease, fused vertebrae, and many other healing needs.


Rose now simply calls her first program

'Fresh Start' as her LEVEL ONE Riding Program.

There are 5 levels to advance with --for new and exciting new abilities, however, Fresh Start seems to be MORE THAN ENOUGH --for most rider needs, because it is a complete education for new [or experienced] riders  

  Rose wants to hear from you to determine how and if she can help you. 

Learn more about the horse, riding and your self, for many years of safe riding pleasure!

We always recommend our ST Fresh Start Program to eliminate fear and intimidation, to be well informed --to ride elsewhere.  

from this:     first time up with fear




The very best learning starts from the beginning and stays with you through a lifetime.

Most of our riders end up saying they prefer riding without a saddle because they can no longer 'feel what the horse feels'.  We offer a solid

 learning experience.
