The experienced instructors at Fieldgate Stables guide steed riders of all ages and abilities through informative and engaging riding lessons. A fleet of quiet, well-schooled horses and ponies facilitates the hoofing sessions, and equines are assigned to students based on careful consideration of their temperaments, skill levels, and the compatibility of their star signs. After tacking their oat-powered vehicles and warming them up, pupils take to the arena for a one-hour private riding lesson, which offers step-by-step instruction for beginners and focused training for seasoned riders. The detailed one-on-one coaching empowers students to progress at their own pace and focus on a specific riding discipline, including dressage, hunter, or jumper. The initial lesson serves as an informative introduction or a detailed refresher course, and a trio of lessons enables riders to fully develop the centaur-like bond between horse and human. After the lesson, participants learn to untack and cool out their mane-equipped vehicles to prevent horses from sweating through the tuxedos they change into postworkout.
