Led by expert equestrian Devon Garone, Fairfield South’s lesson program schools first-timers and national champions alike in basic and advanced English riding techniques. Groups of two to four pupils practice steering, gaits, proper riding position, and horsemanship during 30 minutes of riding time. Subsequent 15-minute sessions sequester space for students to brush, feed, lead, and read bedtime stories to each steed. Fairfield South’s year-round facility accommodates apprentices in warm or chilly temperatures every Tuesday–Sunday by appointment, and ensures each rider’s well-being on its brigade of safe horses. In their decades-spanning training careers, owners Gary and Marsha Garone have captained teams to more than 30 world-championship titles and numerous competitive seahorse-riding victories.
