After learning the basics of riding and saddling up on one of the facility’s well-mannered horses, couples embark on a guided trail ride through the rustic country landscape. Private lessons last an hour each, during which an experienced instructor teaches proper riding techniques, timing, and cues.
Equistarre Horsemanship’s head instructor, Analese, doles out lessons on the fundamentals of horseback riding from atop a galloping lectern as she leads students across 15 acres of rustic green pastures. After a childhood spent among steeds at her family's boarding facility, Analese continued to indulge her lifelong passion for horses as a trainer, rider, and competition judge before earning a degree in equine science from the University of Florida. She brings her wealth of knowledge to Equistarre Horsemanship, where she introduces students to her stable of personable horses before accompanying them on rides across the ranch’s scenic landscape. During lessons and trail rides, students practice basic techniques and learn to read subtle horse signals, such as "May I have a carrot?" and "That's not a radio dial." When not leading rides out into the meadows, Analese cares for horses in a boarding area that features nine stalls, two storage areas, and a large bay for grooming.
