This class is geared toward adults who rode significantly when they were younger and are looking to get back into riding after some time off, or adult amateurs who do not have their own horses and are looking for a new barn home. For Returning to Riding classes, students are expected to catch, groom and tack their own horses before the lesson begins. Class size is capped at 4 students. Lessons are 60 minutes long and there is no corresponding horsemanship instruction. <br /> <br /> If it's been awhile and you might need a refresher on horse handling/grooming/tacking, you are welcome to sign up for one of the Wine & Ride classes for your first session back!<br /> <br /> The skills worked on during Returning to Riding classes depend largely on the goals and skill level of the group.

(3 of 3) running a clean, safe farm. All of the riders at Serenity, young and not-so-young, treat each other with respect and kindness and are always encouraging one another and cheering each other on. As I watch my girls develop their craft, I feel so much gratitude. I couldn’t be happier with Spark Equestrian at Serenity Farm and would encourage anyone with a child that has expressed any interest in horses to give it a try. It could be a life changer.

After searching for the perfect stable for our six-year old daughter to continue her love of riding, Spark Equestrian—Stillwater immediately felt like home! 2.5 years later, Raiyne's love of horses and riding skills have only grown under the amazing leadership of Spark Instructors! They have offered challenging and new experiences coupled with non-stop fun—a perfect combination.
