Riding Lessons

Private lessons are available for all skill levels, ages four and up, by appointment. Our lesson program is structured around weekly one-on-one instruction in our arena. All our lesson horses are highly trained to accommodate differing skill levels, from beginner to advanced.


Stall boarding includes daily turn out and stall cleaning, automatic watering, and multiple daily feeding times with a balanced diet to ensure high performance. We also offer pasture boarding.


Training programs are available for young horses, show horse prospects, and seasoned show horses. Programs are customized to each horse and rider/driver to ensure goals are met. Horses are trained multiple times per week.

Horse Show Competition

Try out for our Show Team! Beginners will experience the thrill of competing and winning blue ribbons at Academy level shows. More experienced riders can showcase their talents at larger regional or national shows. You will also be eligible for Florida State High Point Program awards!

Horsemanship Camps

Camps are offered during spring break, summer, winter break, and most holidays. They are divided by age groups. Campers will learn about horses and proper care, perform fun activities, and get to ride. Held rain or shine, it's a great way to stay active, make new friends, and enjoy being outside.

Advanced Boot Camp

These 3-hour boot camps are an invitation-only offering for advanced riders. The camp focuses on strength and stretching exercises, no-hands balance work, no-stirrup riding, group riding dynamics, patterns, and an in-house horsemanship challenge.

Krystle has gone above and beyond with training my daughter and helping instill values like dedication, honesty, and resilience. She now competes at the highest level; it's the best thing that has happened to her. I couldn't be more grateful!

I know that my horse is receiving the best of care and that he is healthy and happy. Also, my daughter has attended several summer horse camps and enjoyed every minute. I would highly recommend Suncoast Stables to anyone!
