"There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man." - Winston Churchill


One much-loved feature of our Bachman Academy campus is our STABLE OF HORSES, each with a unique appearance and personality. Throughout the year, we offer plenty of opportunities to interact with our horses and participate in trail rides. Our school offers WESTERN PLEASURE RIDING, which provides numerous physical, intellectual, and emotional benefits:

At Bachman, every thing we do is intentional!  Horse-back riding:

* Builds rider's core strength and sense of balance

* Boosts confidence as rider successfully guides the horse using verbal and physical cues

* Serves as a calming, meditative activity out in natural settings

* Offers a chance to read and translate nonverbal cues from horse's behavior

* Increases coordination and reflexs as rider learns to move in response to the horse

* Develops a trusting, warm relationship between horse and rider

* Provides executive functioning skills as riders learn the routines of how to feed, saddle, and groom horses
