The experienced trainers at University Equestrian Center, which opened its doors more than 50 years ago, equip riders with basic and advanced riding skills in a stress-free atmosphere. Aspiring horse-whisperers greet their mounts in the spacious barn and receive all the necessary equipment, such as a saddle, helmet, and carrot on a stick. Outside, lush greenery overhangs smooth riding trails on the sprawling grounds, where horses stand peacefully in grassy pastures.
Instructors tailor lessons to riding skills, helping pupils soar over hurdles or spur horses forward at a slow, steady gait. While equestrians enjoy their lessons, rides, or summer camps, guests can take advantage of the facility’s free WiFi or take dictation from horses that never learned to type.
