Upstate Equestrian Center
At Upstate Equestrian Center, professional trainer and coach Jamie Grant teaches the importance of proper horse care in tandem with the development of safe, polished riding skills. She adapts her English Hunt Seat Equitation lessons for students ranging from advanced riders participating in private lessons to young children taking part in the center’s Tiny Tots and Pony Pals classes. Curriculum in the Hunter/Jumper/Equitation program takes place on the well-appointed grounds, where indoor and outdoor arenas, a jump course, and landscaped pastures provide a variety of riding spaces. Onlookers can watch the action as they cheer on family, friends, or that one dog that still thinks it’s a horse.
