The gentle, sheen-coated stallions at Valcor Stables bond with riders and offer their strong backs for lessons, trail rides, and riding camps. Resident instructors teach riders how to command their steeds in the styles of Western and English riding and jumping during 30-minute and hour-long lessons on the safe training horses, identifiable by their willingness to raise a hoof when they know the answer to the teacher’s question. The experienced equestrians also lead riders around the grounds on trail rides, during which they’ll explore the woods and enjoy the fresh country air.

Smooth, rhythmic, and confident. That's one way witnesses described Mozart's snoring, but it also describes the Paso Fino—a unique horse breed admired for its cadenced gait. Using all four legs in harmony, the paso fino's hooves each strike the ground independently in a flawless sequence of movement. The result is a fluent performance in which the rider appears virtually motionless in the saddle.

Stretched across 56 acres of pastureland in Waymart, RO-NO Ranch lets visitors experience the paso fino's prized march. Nola Haupert-Keill heads the facility's expert staff of equestrians and boasts an equine career that spans more than a quarter-century. At RO-NO, Nola and her team offer lessons to all levels of riders. Most lessons take place in the facility's outdoor riding area, but in cases of bad weather, groups find shelter beneath the roof of RO-NO's spacious indoor riding arena.
