The EPI lesson-lease program is designed to accelerate your progress in developing the feel, timing, flexibility, and leadership that are the foundation of horsemanship. The intent of a lesson-lease is to give you the time and the tools to progress with a horse without the financial commitments and other responsibilities of ownership.
Why do a lesson-lease at EPI?
Lesson-lease program participants have access to their lease horses between lessons, to practice ground work and riding and to further develop the relationship. Regular lessons ensure that your horsemanship advances on a positive and progressive path.
A lesson-lease allows you time to hang out with your lease horse, and to explore bonding activities such as taking walks around the ranch, grazing on the lawn, or sharing an apple with no particular goal in mind.
