This course is for the person that likes to learn while doing it! This course is intended to introduce the novice student and the class group to both basic animal packing and team building. Subjects covered are team organization, packing equipment, animal selection and handling, how to saddle an animal properly and animal maintenance. These basic techniques must be mastered before the student team can move on to any advanced packing and movement. This course is conducted in the field while doing the tasks taught. You will move and learn in both daylight and nighttime hours moving across moderate terrain and establishing a camp site for three nights. Instructors will teach animal handling and packing along with team building exercises to build confidence in both team members and their ability to work together with the animals and each other.
