MEET OUR HORSES
Mackinac Horsemen’s Association strives to build positive, confident, and trusting relationships between horse and human. We believe this is integral to the growth and development of equestrians while also nurturing the values of Mackinac Island. We promote this through our lesson program, 4H program, on site clinics, shows, demonstrations, and our Lease-A-Horse program.
Each horse in our program serves a portion of the Mackinac Horsemen’s Association Mission Statement and offers the opportunity for skill improvement. Lesson horses range in size and ability, and are school masters in their discipline. These horses have been carefully selected to sustain a flourishing lesson program and create a valuable learning experience for our students.
Our lesson program is founded on proper horsemanship, use of aids, and safety for riders. We believe it is essential that our students have the proper tools and skills to build a trusting and confident relationship with their horse. Lessons range from beginner to intermediate/advanced and we focus on both English and Western Dressage. Here at Mackinac Horsemen’s Association each rider is given one on one attention and is started from the basics to provide a firm foundation in their experience as an equestrian.
