Sapphire Stables unites humans with equestrian soulmates in lessons, parties, and camps at its professional riding facilities. Riding lessons instill all the basics of horseback riding, from barn layout and basic care to horse prep before and after the ride. At riding time, a trusty steed acts as your spirit guide on a comprehensive journey through equestrian life that covers steering, caring for gear, grooming, and cleaning the animal's feet of dirt and orange marmalade.
Sapphire Stables also inspires the next generation of cowkids with birthday parties for up to 20 children that offer celebrants the opportunity to ride, brush, and feed the horses. Stable-staff-led games and activities such as pin the tail on the donkey, arts and crafts, and a horseshoe hunt engage little minds and help birthday boys and girls compete with other classmates' lawn-mowing-themed parties. Full reign of the clubhouse provides ample space in which party parents can spread their own food and decorations.
The stables' summer camps welcome children ages 5–15 for five-day sessions that place junior equestrians on a horse for at least three hours each day. Mornings kick off with a ride and lessons in horsemanship such as feeding and grooming. Campers spend afternoons constructing arts and crafts, playing bareback games, and listening to guest speakers. Camps culminate with a mini horse show for parents at the end of the week.
State-of-the-art facilities at Sapphire Stables host riding lessons, summer camps, and birthday parties, teaching riders of all abilities how to ride and care for horses. Situated next to Tradewinds Park, Sapphire Stables has access to miles of trails in addition to its 1-acre riding arena. Here, the stable's instructors cement bonds between rider and steed during lessons that teach how to groom, tack up, and ride a horse without training wheels. Pupils choose between the styles of English or Western riding techniques, but before doing so, they must demonstrate mastery of fundamentals including balance and control.
