Still Waters Equestrian Academy offers students ages five to adult the opportunity to excel in the wholesome, challenging sport of horseback riding. Instruction is open to riders of all ability levels in both western and english disciplines. We provide experienced school horses, riding equipment, and professional instructors.
The Academy Program at Still Waters is based on safety as well as fun and education.
Instructors customize lessons to include more than just riding. Students learn how to groom, tack, and lead a horse along with learning basics on horses nutrition and horse health. Instructors use mounted exercises to improve balance and coordination while providing mental stimulation. Students will learn teamwork and communication skills as they work with their horse to accomplish the goals set out by their instructor. Dedicated students have opportunities to advance in competitive or non-competitive areas of riding.
