- For $55, you get two one-hour private horseback-riding lessons for one person (a $120 value).
The seasoned wranglers at Equestrian’s First Place ferry brand-new riders into the world of equine arts with focused lessons on a secluded country ranch. During gentle, one-hour trail rides, guests hop onto the tops of horses to take in the scenery and get acclimated to the steed’s gait and incessant stories about hay. Trail rides are held three times a day and accommodate up to five riders.
During private lessons, certified trainers school students in the fundamentals of English- and Western-style riding. Students build confidence in their form as they spend a combined two hours cuddling up to the only other animal—besides humans and sword-fighting cats—that wears footgear.
Equestrian's First Place
The tenants who occupy the 12-stall barn at Equestrian's First Place are being conditioned for a variety of specialties. Among them are fast-galloping barrel horses with names such as Pleasure and Mystery, as well as steeds, including Sonyadore, who has been trained for Western-style trotting and English-style reading, writing, and arithmetic.
Under the direction of stable whiz Sarah Brown, this Royal Palm Beach horse hamlet introduces newcomers to the saddle and helps longtime owners overcome training challenges. Each of the stable’s certified trainers possesses an attentiveness to horse psychology and to the nuances of horse-human interaction. Using that expert knowledge, they create cues that owners can use at home to turn their rambunctious ponies into appropriately calm carousel employees. They welcome all levels of riders for beginners’ lessons and for tune-up training.:m]]
