Founded by Saddlebred/Kentucky State Fair Hall of Famer Sam Brannon in 1978, Brannon Stables sprawls over 150 acres of rolling pastures to create an ideal setting for equine entertainment. Enthusiastic teachers lead lessons year-round in the outdoor riding arena when skies are clear or inside the 26-stall barn when rain threatens to smear the horses? hoof polish. Students learn English- and Western-riding styles in a safe and proper manner, regardless of their age or amount of previous experience. Young beginners start with private instruction on the stable's lead line ponies, and older and more experienced riders can participate in group sessions atop more advanced horses.
