Summer Wind Stables
At our facilities, students can enjoy many various activities in horsemanship. We ride Hunter, Jumper, Dressage, Eventing, trail riding for our regular students, hunter paces and some western. We believe that a well rounded, multi-faceted experience is important and we strive to expose our riders to a variety of safe and fun horse activities. We have schooling shows here at Summer Wind and we also travel to local and away shows. Summer Wind also boasts a wonderful Tack Shoppe, filled with all your equine necessities and the latest selection of gifts and “fun stuff” you can imagine. Our regular students, boarders and campers receive a discount in our Tack Shoppe.
Individual attention will be given to ensure students learn at their own experience level, within their own time frame. Our riding program can help timid children learn to become more confident and assertive. Learning to ride and work with a horse proficiently gives horse lovers of all ages a wonderful feeling of accomplishment. Safety is our first priority. The newest standard ASTM-SEI approved helmets are provided and must be worn by all students. A boot with a heel and a hard toe is also necessary. Summer Wind Stables' horses are well trained, wise, trustworthy and friendly. They give the students confidence and a sense of security in a short time as the students learn that the horses will listen to them and are well behaved. We have 16 school horses available for all levels of riding. Our school horses are show quality, and place in the top ribbons consistently at local circuit shows.
Summer Wind Stables has professional staff to see to your needs; whether it be your riding education, caring for your own horse or deepening your appreciation for these magnificent animals. Our goal is to foster a life-long love of horses and to teach respect and proper care of our equine friends. Through the years, we have watched as our students learn to fully appreciate the responsibilities and rewards of being an equestrian. We teach our students how a horse thinks and how to build communication between horse and human. Summer Wind students will learn every aspect of horseback riding and caring for the horse. Our stable enjoys an excellent reputation for safety. With that in mind, through our various riding and education programs, our students learn all the basics: grooming, tacking, feeding, cleaning stalls, bathing the horse and cleaning & conditioning their equipment. As students progress, they will learn to work with younger horses, lunging, trailer loading, setting jump courses, equine medical care and so much more.
