Twenty-year horse riding veteran Alicia Harper and her staff of equine aficionados work together to create a comfortable environment where students can learn foundational riding skills. Their fleet of horses includes options for all levels and riders who are trained to compete in disciplines including dressage and show jumping. Focusing on safety, the staff offers lessons for casual riders interested in scenic strolls as well as more intensive instruction for those looking to compete. Regular theory workshops delve into the arcane aspects of caring for horses, and enthusiastic students are invited to help out around the barn, where they can learn about feeding, grooming, and losing gracefully to horses at games of canasta to keep their morale high.
