The accomplished instructors at Bell View Acres have guided saddle sitters through the expansive facility for almost five decades, teaching proper equestrian technique and horse care to pupils of all experience levels. In addition to receiving a firsthand education on how to raise the horse's sails, novice equestrians learn proper riding form, technique, and how to clean and care for the animal. Bell View Acres' trainers have judged local and national competitions, been inducted into the UPHA Hall of Fame, and taught horses to analyze classic literature. Riders must don proper riding wear, including long pants and shoes with a hard sole, before stepping into the facility's 250'x80' outdoor ring. In colder months, a heated indoor ring shields rein grabbers from shivering timber.
