Instructors cement bonds between rider and steed during 60-minute lessons on equestrian fundamentals. Alternatively, five-day summer-camp sessions encompass activities on horseback— such as lessons and trail rides—as well as crafts, guidelines for barn safety, and grooming contests. Parents are welcome to attend a barbecue and horse show on the last day. Camp meets from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday through Friday, though the timing is flexible to accommodate visitors. All ages are welcome.<p>
Longview Stables and Riding Academy
When it came to her daughter Kayla’s equestrian education, Patty Savage Wooters entrusted the task to the most qualified candidate: herself. Kayla eventually became a two-time World Champion at the Kentucky State Fair and today, both Patty and Kayla channel their expertise into Longview Stables and Riding Academy. Private and group lessons accommodate first timers and horse-show veterans alike in the indoor and outdoor arenas, where instructors expound on fundamentals and bond riders and steeds via improved communication instead of trust falls.
At summer camp, counselors shepherd kids of all ages through daily rides and the basics of horse care, as well as horse-themed crafts. Birthday parties afford opportunities for kids to mount a mini pony named Pottachelli, while the birthday kid bounces atop a fully-grown horse. Nearby, boarded horses enjoy the shelter of stalls or canter like recently animated garden statues around emerald corrals and pastures.
