There are those who think that riding has physical benefits, but just for the horse. Actually, horseback riding can offer anywhere from a moderate to an invigorating exercise to both horse and rider, with an added positive physical and emotional affect. The riders develop a deep fondness for their horses, which in turn develops into a true bond.

A healthy outdoor environment promotes a well-rounded beginning or continuing experience for any rider.

Registration for Fall classes is now open.
