Since 1987, Bellaire Farms owners Kris and Kara Martalock have imparted equine-riding experience to pupils of all skill levels amid well-kempt stables filled with american saddlebred horses. During each 45-minute lesson, gentle steeds wordlessly encourage riders and instructors offer tips, tricks, and sugar cubes as students amass rein-handling skills such as balance and coordination. Guests can trot and gallop outdoors on carpets of soft dirt and grass or exercise an indoor horse-whispering voice from within the facility’s heated arena during inclement weather. The conscientious instructors take time to match pupils with an appropriate hoofed partner whether riders are complete novices or American frontiersmen looking to correct a century’s worth of bad habits; guests are also welcome to bring their own horses to ride during lessons.
