Five Star Ranch’s cadre of instructors guide saddle sitters of all abilities through a series of safe and educational riding programs atop a fleet of well-groomed steeds. Helmed by a savvy guide, a one-hour trail ride gives solo or tandem riders a chance to walk, trot, or Charleston their horses along sylvan paths at a relaxed pace. Ensembles of six or fewer pony pilots amble along tranquil routes and stockpile lungs with oxygen freshly baked by the surrounding trees. Participants hoping to take the reins must wear full-length pants and boots outfitted with a heel of at least a half-inch. Craniums and their priceless contents can be secured under riding helmets supplied by Five Star Ranch.

The indoor arena, outdoor arena, and winding trails on Five Star Ranch's grounds resound with pounding hooves as instructor Gail Haynes and her experienced staff guide visitors during lessons, clinics, and trail rides. In a well-lit 80'x130' indoor arena, teachers imbue horseback-riding students with safety tips for horse leading and expound on tacking techniques and grooming principles, such as which horse breeds look best with a pompadour.
The Ranch's clinics cover the gamut of equine wherewithal, from basic horsemanship skills to learning how to properly conduct a horse using reins instead of a magic wand. Visitors to the ranch can also amble into the tack store for all of their equestrian needs, such as hand-picked grooming supplies from renowned brands Professionals' Choice and John Lyons.
