The Equestrian Center at Andrews Osborne Academy’s staff of accomplished equestrians imbue participants of all skill sets with a foundation of riding techniques and overall horsemanship. Before beginning the half-hour lesson, which ingrains riders with English Hunter/Jumper discipline, each pupil selects a mare from a string of trustworthy and trained horses based on its size and ACT scores. Two 100’x200’ indoor arenas, a 300’x300’ outdoor arena, and a plethora of scenic campus trails host sessions depending on each apprentice’s preference. After dismounting from saddles, students can recline in Andrew Osborne Academy’s two-story heated and air-conditioned viewing lounge, which permits glimpses of stallions galloping in the indoor arena or a view short-lived horse Jenga tournaments in the main barn.
