Deborah Stambler: Charity Checks: Giving Tradition Our family is sort of loose on holiday traditions. It could be that having family scattered across the country is the reason for the dearth of holiday routine. Or maybe it's some notion of tradition=authority that scares my husband and I. Now I'm picturing Santa Claus as The Man and it's rather silly. So this year, we're going to start a new tradition.

Lessons Lessons are available for adults and children. We start people who have never been around horses as well as coach advanced riders. School horse lessons are normally scheduled for one and a half hour time blocks. Students learn to groom, tack up, and un-tack. Actual riding time may vary depending on the skill level and stamina of the rider in addition to the fitness of the horse. Advanced riders often take half hour lessons to school their personal mounts on specific skills.
