Eight to twenty campers aged 5 to 15 attend Sapphire Stables Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., riding for three hours each day and engaging in fun games and arts and crafts. When out of the saddle, campers learn how to groom and feed horses and listen to guest speakers. At the end of the week, parents can attend the mini horse show put on by the group.
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.
