At High Point Stables, the mission is to transform novice horseback riders into well-rounded equestrians both capable and comfortable in the saddle or out. To that end, trainers teach their students every aspect of proper horsemanship, from hunter/jumper riding technique to caring for the horse to galloping across miles of trails. If students should choose to extend their education beyond basic lessons and camps, they can begin preparing for any of the horse shows in which High Point Stables regularly participates.
Opening the Acts 2 Acres Equestrian Center was an ideal decision for Michelle Alvarez, who was eager to make use of both her teaching experience and her lifelong passion for owning and showing horses. Today, her center specializes in training young riders in beginner lessons, which journey through nearby Tradewinds Park's scenic trails and focus on fundamentals such as safety, care, horsemanship, and grooming.
Youth may enjoy mornings at Pony Club or entire days at equestrian camp playing games, filling their noggins with educational material, and riding horses. Acts 2 Acres Equestrian Center is approved by the Girl Scouts of Broward County, meaning that the facility's experienced instructors are accustomed to teaching girl scouts and receiving payment in the form of thin-mint cookies.
