During one-on-one lessons, trainers spend five minutes expounding safety and 10 explaining tacking and grooming before students ride steeds for 45 minutes according to a personalized lesson plan. At summer camp, equestrians sharpen their English-style horseback-riding skills in a group environment. Along with riding, campers ages 3–16 tackle vaulting, nutrition, safety, and grooming in between dips in the pool and trots along trails.
The owners of Starfall Ranch not only share a bloodline, but also the opinion that budding equestrians should evolve at their own pace. Consequently, personalized instruction forms the cornerstone of private and group lessons that take place within two acres of scenic grounds. Riding sessions are calibrated according to ability—novice students learn basic skills such as tacking and grooming, whereas advanced students acquire intricate knowledge of topics such as bareback riding and parallel parking. At summer camp, the trainers teach English-style riding to entire crews, interspersing instruction with swimming and trail rides.
