Stable Management

image
It is our belief that riders of all levels should have the opportunity to learn all aspects of caring for and handling horses in addition to riding.

Overview

In addition to quality instruction for riders, Brown Ledge also offers a Stable Management course that allows riders the opportunity to receive one one one and small group instruction in these areas. Instructors are available for these lessons from 9 am – 12 noon and 2:30 pm – 5:00 pm. They typically last 30 to 45 minutes.

Beginner level riders at Brown Ledge learn how to:

  • groom
  • tack
  • feed
  • water

Intermediate and vanguard (advanced) training includes:

  • lectures on confirmation
  • recognition of diseases
  • basic cures
  • when to call the vet
  • how and when to use various kinds of tack
  • the differences involved in conditioning for shows and events

Our Stable

We are very proud of the 2012 renovation of our Brown Ledge Stables.

Our tack room contains the saddle and bridle for each horse and an area to clean equipment properly.  With 32 box stalls, each horse has his own space and each stall has cross ties creating a safe environment for grooming, and tacking up.

In addition to our stable, we have three outdoor riding rings that, when not in use for riding lessons, are where horses are ‘let-out’ in evenings and on weekends.
