Helmed by equine experts Brenda and Robert Langendoen, B’N’R Stables helps students of all abilities unleash their inner jockeys during interactive, noncompetitive lessons. An introductory lesson expounds upon the basics of steed bestriding such as grooming, tacking, and riding, granting pupils the chance to connect with a horse without spending an afternoon braiding each other’s hair. Students eager for exclusive instruction can opt for a private 30-minute lesson, and a 75-minute group lesson enables cooperative learning with up to four total participants.
Alternatively, pony pilots can hone riding prowess over the course of 10-weeks with a winter lesson session capped at four students to ensure individualized attention and student safety. Expert instructors coach nascent buckaroos through the art of western riding during each 75-minute lesson, developing skills such as barrel racing and gazing pensively into the sunset. Lessons can be tailored to suit a range of experience levels and abilities, from beginner to seasoned canterer, and all participants hone horse handling and care skills. While B’N’R Stables equips noggins with helmets to safeguard cranial filing cabinets, students should arrive to class with feet swaddled in riding boots with a 0.5-inch heel.
