Summer Wind Stables

Lessons

Your riding goals come first

Summer Wind Stables' horses are well cared for and well mannered. We have horses and ponies for beginner through experienced riders. Our instructors assure you of a pleasant and safe experience. We pride ourselves in our excellent instruction and our friendly, family oriented environment. Our riders develop excellent skills and go on to succeed in any form of riding they pursue. We expose our riders to all possible equestrian activities to ensure a well-rounded, fun and interesting experience. Many of the students go on to achieve successful equestrian careers because of the knowledge gained at Summer Wind Stables. Our riders have a variety of goals and we strive to teach each of them the skills they need to reach any goal- be it trail riding, showing, training, or ownership of their horses.



Lessons are available throughout the year. We have an outdoor arena as well as a small cross country course. For rainy days and cold winter months, we hold lessons in our spacious indoor arena. Our indoor arena viewing lounge is heated for your winter comfort. We provide everything needed, including bridles, saddle pads, saddles and ASTM-SEI approved helmets for our riders.

Tack lessons are provided for $10.00 per lesson, until a rider can brush, saddle and bridle a horse without help. We have a detailed "tacking criteria" that our riders need to know before tacking alone. We consider horse care to be a very important part of a rider's experience as well as a wonderful way for riders to get comfortable with the horse. We believe confidence with the horse on the ground enhances the riding experience.

Showing

Some healthy competition!

Summer Wind Stables holds shows located on the property for our students throughout the year. These shows provide an excellent opportunity for students to work toward goals, to improve their riding skills, and provides them with showing experience prior to traveling to shows offered at other local barns. Our goal is to have confident riders who excel in equitation classes and confident horses that steal the spotlight in under saddle classes.
