Sheridan Stables’s encouraging instructors school fledgling equestrians in the way of the horse during hunter- and Western–style riding lessons, which prepare students to navigate miles of green pastures and trails. A 90- to 120-minute session atop one of the stable’s easygoing horses breaks down the fundamentals of steed steering and spares riders the hassle of converting their mopeds to run on oats. Lights flood the 250’x175’ riding arena after dark, allowing nighttime riders to practice jumps or basic riding techniques. Sheridan Stables’ trail rides strengthen horse-and-rider companionship, interweaving with public dirt paths, open fields, ponds, and woods. Trail rides can last as little as one hour or as long as half a day, depending on the rider’s comfort level and whether the horse agrees to pay for lunch.
