There's a 19-stall barn and an attached arena inside Equestrian Arts. Outside, an expansive sand ring, including jumps and paddocks, stands near a horse-bathing area and grooming stall. Ruling this expansive roost is a team of experienced trainers and horse handlers. Certified coach Janet heads up the lesson program, using her 20 years of riding experience to lead group sessions for riders of all ability. Beginners can pick up riding basics atop friendly and patient school horses, as well as grooming, tacking up, and horse-handling skills. Boarding services, camps, and birthday parties are also available for visitors.
