4-C Stables hands equine enthusiasts the reins to its team of even-tempered horses for trail rides, camps, and lessons within its expansive facility. Stable owner Stacey, a veterinary technician by training, heads up 4-C’s 60-minute horsemanship lessons, which are tailored to each rider’s experience and introduce varied aspects of horses and horse care. Students begin with the basics of safety and grooming before matriculating to more advanced equitation topics, such as dismounting and riding in slow motion for dramatic effect. With successful completion of all beginner-level requirements, students can graduate to intermediate studies, where they learn such skills as proper care of the tack, issuing verbal commands, and riding with the correct posture.
