Hello! We are Bend Horse Talk

Learning by listening… to yourself and the horses.


Horses have the ability to teach us many things if we learn to listen. Come experience and learn to communicate with horses, understand horse perspective, herd dynamics, your leadership skills, safe handling, equipment, and how to care for horses. Learn About Horses is sure to teach you about yourself as well as why horses are very special partners. 

Whether you come because horses fascinate you, or you come to get practical experience, you will satisfy both. If you are considering riding lessons, volunteering, or improving your relationship with a horse, this ground based experience is a perfect fit.

About us

with a professional background in teaching and a lifetime of horsemanship, we will provide you with a targeted and comprehensive learning experience.
