At Royal Winds Farm, husband-and wife-owners Todd Lee and Billie Rae Graham and their experienced [staff](http://gr.pn/q4nBBk) impart equine knowledge to students using both basic and advanced techniques. Students arrive to the 100-acre farm wearing long pants and closed-toe shoes, and may choose to bring their own horses or allow the friendly instructors to match them with appropriate steeds based on age, experience level, and their favorite foods. Nascent equestrians can choose two 30-minute introduction lessons to brush up on basics, including grooming and tacking techniques, and seasoned horse handlers can hone their hunter and jumper skills in more challenging one-hour sessions. Aside from the expert attention, the state-of-the-art outdoor arena boasts private paddocks, trails, a full jump course, and large rolling pastures, making it the perfect place to unleash your inner wrangler or lead an all-horse production of _The Sound of Music_.
