Summer Wind Stables and Tack SHP
At Summer Wind Stables, instructors lead students through safety-centered lessons and rides in large indoor and outdoor arenas as well as along several wooded acres. During tack lessons, novice equestrians learn to saddle and bridle a horse, building confidence and comfort before they can qualify to tack horses unsupervised. The experienced instructors also host private and group classes, which teach pupils proper riding techniques and help them work toward personal goals such as showing, performing synchronized drills set to music, and competing in Transatlantic races. After lessons, students can unwind in a heated lounge area or peruse the selection at Summer Wind’s gift shop. The shop features whimsical gifts such as mugs and jewelry, along with painted ponies and Breyer horse figurines capable of decorating a kid’s bedroom without leaving hoof prints on the wallpaper.
