$39 for Two Private 30-Minute Horseback-Riding Lessons ($80 Value)
Riders increase abilities while bonding with horses on grassy paddocks, in an outdoor arena, or in a sheltered practice space.
Wild Oak Farm
Acres of grass paddocks ripple in the wind around the large indoor and outdoor riding arenas at Wild Oak Farm, where owner Renee Lenkart works to help students to improve their riding abilities and develop a bond with equines. As hooves clop out a staccato rhythm against the sun-soaked red soil, Renee calls upon years of experience crafting lessons for both beginner and advanced students. She has also spent time training and showing hunters and jumpers, and many of her students have gone on to participate in national competitions or yelling matches at grocery stores with no-horse policies.
