East Cobb Stables
Since 1959, East Cobb Stables' 3.5-acre parcel located in the Georgian suburbs has served as an idyllic classroom for students to learn the timeless, unconditional bond between a man and his equines. The resident horses enjoy vigorous exercise on two outdoor rings, where visitors learn tacking up and perfect the techniques of the hunter-jumper discipline. Imparting grooming, tacking, and riding techniques during lessons, a stable of five instructors molds pupils from all backgrounds and age groups into bona fide equestrians, calling upon years of varied experience to share the secrets of taming the wild puppeteers that live within each horse.
