Advancing students’ equine education
The Northwest Natural Horsemanship Center offers young students a path to develop a natural way of being with horses; beyond the basics. Our Wrangler Club helps advancing students refine their riding and horsemanship skills and provides a safe and fun place for children to immerse themselves in the horse world though advanced equine education, experiences and personal development.
The NWNHC Wrangler Club is intended for students who have already mastered their basic ground and riding skills. Club Members must pass a qualifying horsemanship test to participate or be invited to join.
Here are just a few of the things Wrangler Club members experience:
- Horse anatomy and health

- Care and feeding
- Tack and equipment
