Owner, trainer, and seasoned horsewoman Kristen Paster helms a staff of experienced instructors that enlightens equestrians of all ages and experience levels at Yorktown Stables’ scenic farm. Surrounded by 100 acres of open pasture, the staff tutors students in both the English and Western styles atop trained steeds that are specially paired with riders based on experience, size, and opinions about carrot farming subsidies. Pupils glean both mounted techniques as well as horse care, learning to properly lead, groom, and tack their four-legged companions.

Alternatively, couples embark on weekend guided trail rides that meander along the glittering Poquoson River. After a 15-minute introduction to their horse with an overview of riding basics, groups of approximately four riders embark on excursions to trot amid open plains, through thick, wooded areas, and over native species of barrel jump.
