Denver Equestrians guides students in the fine art of centaur impersonation with large indoor and outdoor arenas that provide ample traction for riding lessons. During each 90-minute introductory lesson, professional instructors will cover the basics of oat-powered transportation such as mounting and dismounting, transitioning from walk to halt, and galloping backward in time to more than six students per class. Alternatively, more saddle-seasoned students can opt to take a lesson at their own level as they glean horseback know-how and make new friends in group classes or absorb custom instruction and individualized exercises in private lessons. Students should register in advance and, upon arrival, meet their instructors and the steeds before brushing up on proper grooming and tacking technique.
