Hoofbeats Academy employs the Equibloom Method, a “MOUNTessori” approach. The method was developed over the last decade by Meshelle Rives DBA Equibloom Therapeutic Riding. The method results in a highly educated, specialized, happy and healthy equine faculty. The method ensures the best preparation and experience for the horse and therefore the student. The program is unique and produces measurable positive change in both student and horse.
