An instructor bolsters students’ riding techniques during a 60-minute lesson. Students converge in a covered arena with up to three other people, then review maneuvers such as trotting and jumping. Horses and helmets are provided; students should don long pants and closed-toed shoes with a heel.
Many of the young riders at Elite Stables begin lessons soft-voiced and shy, and the instructors have seen them bloom into skilled riders whose confidence extends beyond the arena.
Elite Stables recognizes that every rider comes to the stable with different goals, so lessons are tailored to the rider’s aspirations: training without stirrups, for instance, helps students strengthen their legs. Gentle trots offer slow-paced relaxation, while jumping offers an unparalleled adrenaline rush. Regardless of the itinerary, instructors strive to foster a safe learning environment where students can decide which area of equestrianism they wish to pursue, be it dressage or carousel operations.
