Horsemanship was once a vital skill, much like the ability to avoid sailing off the end of the earth or discern which pizza trees were poisonous.

Galloping astride nearly 20 years of equestrian experience, Sarah MacKusick heads up the riding curriculum and trains the horses at Iron Star Equestrian. On a picturesque patch of Gray Lily Farm's sweeping 72-acre property, instructors tailor each one-on-one lesson to pupils' preferences, whether for hunting, jumping, and dressing, or simply picking up riding basics. Classes at Iron Star operate with the philosophy that communication and patience between equine and equestrian forge a successful basis for learning as well as an important alliance in case horses should ever conquer the world.
Iron Star Equestrian
While bent over dirt, excavating artifacts as an archaeologist for the state of Florida, Sarah MacKusick dreamed of flying over the terrain atop one of her beloved horses. After two years, her opportunity finally came. It was then that she was able to lease a nearby property and open her own facility, which she named Iron Star Equestrian. Now located on the spacious 72-acre Gray Lily Farm, Iron Star offers lessons to casual riders and competition-focused equestrians alike. Leasing options are also available for those looking to train with the same horse, and boarding services give steeds a home away from their owner’s home.
