Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Silver Spur Riding School
What's the most important aspect of horsemanship? Ask the experienced instructors at Silver Spur Riding School, and they'll probably all have the same answer: respect. Their program emphasizes safety above all, but that all starts with showing a proper level of care and attention to their team of retired show horses. These instructors (and the horses, too, for that matter) aren't interested in taking students on "pony rides." Instead, they focus on teaching all aspects of correct horsemanship from the ground up in lessons for all levels of ability and for anyone six years old or older.
