From the tree-lined confines of a sequestered ranch, the saddle-savvy squad at Equestrian's First Place schools first-time riders in the fine art of equine acquaintance. Visitors of all experience levels can hop atop horse-mounted holsters for 60 minutes of guidance from trainers certified in various riding styles such as English show, Western barrel, and Antarctic pogo. Riding lessons for children ages 6 and older give mounted moppets their first taste of horseback life, and grown-ups can practice for a romantic hillside gallop or research one half of next Halloween's centaur-accountant costume. Lessons are typically scheduled Monday–Saturday between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.

About 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]]
