At Aurum, our focus is teaching life lessons and life skills, not just teaching you how to ride a horse. Ask any of the staff the lessons and skills they have learned around horses!
Learning to love horses means learning to be empathetic towards another sentient being. We need to be understanding of our horses needs and how they communicate them. We also have to put our horses first. Canceling a lesson or scratching a class or missing the national finals can be the cost of putting someone or something ahead of ourselves, and there is no cost too great to care for others.
Nothing teaches humility better than horses. Just when you think you are on top of the world, they remind you that you are never done paying your dues and learning
Looking after a 1200 pound animal who is reliant on you for everything, requires ones to learn a great deal of responsibility. We teach our riders how to care for the horses, from basic grooming to advanced anatomy to feeding and nutrition and everything in between
Riding isnt easy and competing is difficult. We teach kids how to win well and loose well and support your fellow competitors and teammates
Most importantly, we teach ethics and integrity, do the right thing even when no one is watching. We live this ourselves by limiting the number of lessons our horses teach and by paying our instructors a living wage and give our horses the best possible healthcare (my kids would argue better than theirs!). Money is not as important as wellfare of our horses and staff. We teach our students to always do the right thing, even if it isnt the easy thing.
That old saying, "you have the get right back on the horse" Well, here you get to live it, if you fall off, you do indeed have to get right back on the horse and try again.
