Horses reduce stress

Everyone has too much stress in their life and too much stress can have negative impacts. Horse time helps you relax and find moments of peace in your fast-paced life.

  • Mucking stalls-exercise reduces mental stress
  • Grooming your horse-rhythmic motions melt tension away
  • Longeing-reinforces your position with your horse
  • Hand grazing-bonding with your horse in a quiet time
  • Trail riding-serene setting to bond with horse
  • Training session-mental and physical activity combine for a sense of accomplishment

Whatever your reason for wanting to ride, you'll receive all these benefits and much more.

As a 65+ senior, who had never been on a horse until about 10 years ago, I started lessons at Deerfield 2+ years ago. First once a week and now two. I love it and would recommend it to everyone! The trainers and instructors are world class, the horses very well trained and taken care of and the setting is beautiful. Try it. Deerfield is the best of everything.
