Jester Park Equestrian Center
Since 1998, Jester Park Equestrian Center has welcomed guests for horse-related activities year round. Part of Polk County Conservation, the facility includes a large indoor arena available for rental, as well as a 40 stall stable, an inside patio, and a full-service kitchen, where chefs prepare elaborate meals for parties and the picky horses. May through early November, groups bestride the friendly steeds to explore the surrounding countryside's trails. And for those who would like some pointers, the staff leads English- and Western-style riding lessons. An all-around public Equestrian Center, Jester Park offers English- and Western-style riding lessons, a Therapeutic Horsemanship Program, Special Public Events, and Pony Rides year-round.
