Cloverleaf Ranch, a third-generation equine enterprise, brings more than 60 years of tradition to its comprehensive roster of Western horseback-riding classes. During each lesson, jockeys aged seven and older pair with a spirited school horse against the serene surroundings of Cloverleaf’s 160-acre ranch, which grants ample space for riders to master beginning trots, advanced tricks, or old-timey train heisting. Private lessons lavish saddle-sitters with one-on-one attention, while semiprivate sessions offer riding companions repose amid the ranch’s rolling hills, rustic environs, and antique covered wagons. Cloverleaf’s covered arena shields riders and their steeds from rain, sleet, and skydiving rodeo clowns, ensuring lessons commence despite any harsh elements. All riders must wear boots and long pants during lessons; students without their own equipment may borrow boots and helmets from Cloverleaf at no extra cost.
