    MANE CIRCLE

    Youth Riding Lessons

    with Alanah Pruitt

     

    When: Contact for availability
    Where: Lucerne Park Rd., Winter Haven, FL


    Itinerary: 

    1 hour youth rider lessons

     

    MANE Event:

    Have a 4H youth competitor or young person needing horsemanship lessons? Come get a private 1 hour lesson on your own horse from Alanah!

     

    Alanah Pruitt started her equine journey with competing in 4H for 5 years. She and Clover, her home grown & trained equine partner, achieved multiple Reserve High Point and High Point championships at the county and district level. She is a 2x state champion in the Keyhole event!

    After 4H Alanah has studied and continues to advance her horsemanship skills with education through riding & learning from other local trainers, competing at shows, and by her work at Hope Equine Rescue.

    At Hope Equine Rescue she works and trains abused horses that have behavioral problems and PTSD. Many of the skills she uses is a result of her being a level 2 Savvy student of the Parelli Natural Horsemanship Program.

     

    It is Alanah's goal to improve communication and partnerships between horse and rider teams.

     

    Youth riders, especially those competing in 4H events, will benefit from the instruction of a horsewoman who is experienced with the different 4H disciplines, problem solving horse behavior issues and is already working with youth riders.
