Whispering Meadows Equestrian Center
Don't forget about our lesson special happening this month! We are happy to offer our introductory lessons for 1/2 off through the month of December. These 1:1 lessons are a great way to see if your child is ready to learn the joy of horses. We also offer gift certificates which are perfect for Christmas gifts! If you'd like to sign up, call or text Wendy 360-567-7211 and we will get the ball rolling.
If you have a child with a passion or love of horses, there is no greater gift you can give them then an opportunity to be meaningfully involved with these magnificent creatures.
Some of the principal values at our riding school are:
How to solve problems with kindness and build relationships on trust
How to create a goal, a plan, and stick to it consistently over time to achieve success
How to dust off your bum when you fall and try again
It might sound crazy, but horses will give you someone to talk to when no one else will listen. Many horse people might tell you in a moment of candor how horses were there for them in their darkest times.
We started out just teaching kids how to ride horses- but what we found as a side affect- we were really teaching them about life. In dealing with the inevitable failures and disappointment inherent in the sport- we saw the children picking themselves back up. Developing resilience and learning about leadership, problem solving- and ultimately to care deeply for something other than themselves.
Oftentimes, sadly, the children we see get into trouble are simply children who never found a healthy outlet or community for their inner joy. They never found a sport or activity that they could throw themselves into- where they could learn that its OK to fail as long as you pick yourself right back up. They never found a group of people united around a common goal, and a place where the principles of humility, responsibility, and empathy were the keys to success.
Students who join our riding school often find a community where loyalty, commitment, and hard work are rewarded. We are a group that is united by our love of both horses, learning, and the outdoors. We work together, and not only expand our generosity of spirit- but also our emotional awareness to truly succeed with these sensitive creatures. It is something that you must truly experience to understand- and we invite you to come see for yourself.
