Beverly and Mike Flynn of Heaven's Gate Farm have taught students of all levels about horses and riding for more than 25 years. Lessons take place on Heaven’s Gate’s Farm and cover many disciplines, including jumping, hunt seat, horse care, and postmodern saddleism. With years of riding experience and championship titles under their belts, the trainers provide clear and gentle guidance to horse-happy hopefuls, resulting in strong, confident riders with proper seat and hand skills. A spacious outdoor ring is watered daily for dust-free riding, and the large indoor arena ensures year-round riding safe from torrential thundersnow and lightening rainbows.
Five-day summer camps run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and teach kids of all ages proper horsemanship and grooming techniques, helping establish a bond between riders and their assigned horses or ponies. In addition to daily riding lessons, baby buckaroos can partake in supervised swimming, arts and crafts, and games such as capture the flag. At the end of the week, parents can come to watch the final horse show, at which their spawn show off their new skills and celebrate with a slice of sugar-cube pizza and raucous neighing.
