Double R Stables goes beyond simple riding lessons and aims to teach students to have a personal relationship with their steeds, emphasizing safety and understanding one's horse. Instructors versed in natural horsemanship captain 60-minute lessons that cover the basics of riding, equine physiology and behavior, horse care, and grooming. Though helmets are provided, students should wear long pants and close-toed shoes, preferably with a heel.

Double R Stables

The natural method of horsemanship steers riding and training lessons at Double R Stables, a 10-acre sanctuary nestled in the heart of the Asheville Mountains. The farm's founders, Skip and Brigitte Ruckle, uphold equine excellence by encouraging riders to develop true communication with their horses before embarking on the trail toward competition. They also board their horses in 16 spacious stalls designed to keep the animals calm, friendly, and less likely to run away to pursue a fruitless career in tap dancing.
