  • Wattland II
    Wattland II initiates young equestrians into the world of horseback riding with private lessons and camps. Private learners saddle up for a one-hour trot around the riding ring and trail where they’ll take in views of the surrounding stables and pastures. Greeting sessions foster snout-to-snout time as patrons pat and feed majestic steeds and instructors teach secrets about how to care for horses and teach them the finer points of trigonometry. Kids seeking to improve human-equine relations can attend day camps, which combine saddle time with crafts and games. Half-day camps also include snacks, so kids can sate their thirst for knowledge while appeasing their hunger for something more edible.

  • Sawgrass Nature Center and Wildlife Hospital
    To properly care for these baby birds, SNC's professional staff and volunteers feed them, supply a heat source, and give medication when needed, along with keeping the bird enclosures clean. When the birds are ready, they're moved to larger cages, and finally move to the flight aviary where they strengthen their wings. The SNC relies on donations to help it accommodate the extra charges it receives during breeding season, including the costs of purchasing specialized food and other necessary resources to care for the birds.

  • High Point Stables
    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.

  • Acts 2 Acres Equestrian Center
    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.
