During the private lessons, an instructor teaches the student (ages 3 and older) to groom, saddle, bridle, and ride a horse. Once the student has groomed and saddled their steed, they strap on a helmet and learn to walk and trot on a lead line. Classes can be scheduled Monday–Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. or on Sundays from noon to 7 p.m.

K/B Stables

At K/B Stables, instructor Donna Stading-Smith imparts the equine wisdom she has been accruing since she first saddled up when she was 3 years old. As a former elementary media specialist and a 4-H teacher for 14 years, she’s experienced in making horseback riding a comfortable and fun activity for both beginners and more seasoned riders. Regular lessons and training prep students to take the reins for casual or competitive rides in English, western, or dressage styles. When they're not supporting budding equestrians, some 20 horses gallop across K/B Stables’ 11 acres. The family-run stable hosts 30 stalls for boarding accommodations by the night, week, month, or whatever period of time the horse’s former girlfriend said it needed to “sort things out.”
