Dawn Ferster "Arena to Trail" Workshop

Dawn Ferster invites you to an ‘Arena to Trail’ Transitions and Equine Adventure Work Shop

This small group workshop is for those wanting a solid relationship with their horse. Individualized programs are available to work on specific needs for each horse and rider. 


Private Sessions, Semi-private and group sessions are available depending on your goals and needs.

We will work in small groups of 2-3 for 2 hours, then in the afternoon we will work again.

As you progress we will work in small groups of 4-6.

Sessions include:

  • ‘Arena to Trail’ transition with obstacles
  • Ground Work, teaching your horse their job “To Keep You Safe”
  • Leadership, does your horse trust you?
  • Confidence Building for both horse and rider
  • Learn exercises and games to play with, train and condition your horse all at the same time, including the Working Circle, Hip to Shoulder, Self-carriage.
  • Learn to use your seat, legs and hands as a guide.
  • Learn to use words and cues to help your horse do its job.
  • Work ethic
  • Learn the benefits of ponying, and how to pony safely. And so much more!

My goal is to give you some tools that you can use to have a better, safer, more confident relationship with your equine friend! We all have different issues and we will learn from each other in this workshop.
