At Blue Sky Stables, seasoned instructors guide equestrian newbies and veteran jockeys alike during private horse-riding lessons. Amidst the stable's 5 acres of tranquil terrain, gentle, good-natured steeds volunteer disciplined trots in an environment that is free of pretension, encouraging students to focus on developing a solid rider-and-horse rapport. Beginners learn how to control their horse, working to establish steady balance, proper riding position, and satisfactory volume levels on saddle subwoofers, and advanced riders glean classical methods of dressage en route to creating a harmonious and color-coordinated partnership with their pony counterpart. A lighted indoor arena provides shelter for lessons held during winter months or Christmas in July, and Blue Sky Stables keeps some helmets available for students who don't own their own.
