During the first half of the two-hour lesson, you'll learn to handle, lead, and groom horses, as well as take off and put on the necessary equipment.

Owner and trainer Mike McGowan and his staff cultivate a love of all things equestrian on the scenic grounds of Heritage Stables. The facility's 80'x200' outdoor arena allows neophyte riders to practice walking, trotting, and cantering as guardians and onlookers relax in a heated viewing room. Prior to lessons, the trainers keep horses in prime riding shape, pampering each animal with a 12'x12' stall in which it can enjoy twice-daily feedings of hay and grain and biweekly readings of Cat Fancy.
