Krystle has gone above and beyond with training my daughter and helping instill values like dedication, responsibility, 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 to Krystle.

Yolanda L.

My daughter and I started out as lesson riders at Suncoast Stables and have progressed to owning a show horse and competing. Krystle's ability to educate, mentor, and progress both students and horses continues to exceed my expectations.

Sherry H.

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!

All the riders at Suncoast Stables support each other's achievements. Krystle is a fun, energetic, and positive person who emphasizes proper care, respect, safety, and good horsemanship. We wouldn't go anywhere else!

There is a real community feeling at Suncoast Stables and the instruction is excellent. The instructors have given me the confidence to embrace riding at the age of 55. They are very professional, knowledgeable, and welcoming. I love being at the stables!

Horsemanship Camps

Summer and Holiday Camps

Suncoast Stables Horsemanship Youth Camps

Camps are offered in the summer and during school holidays and breaks. Besides learning how to ride, campers will also get hands-on experience caring for a horse, including grooming, feeding, tacking up, and cleaning stalls. We also use fun games to reinforce educational content, such as horse anatomy, nutrition, safety, and equipment.


Children ages 6 - 18 can attend camp. We have helmets available. When riding, campers must wear long pants and closed toe hard-soled shoes. Be sure to bring a cooler with lunch, drinks, and snacks... and don't forget your sunscreen and sunglasses!

This year's weekly summer camps are being held June 22-26, June 29-July 3, July 13-17, July 27-31, August 3-7, and August 10-14. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Contact us for more information.

Youth Club

Boots, Bits, and Bridles Youth Club

Our Youth Club is all about horsemanship, which is much more than just riding. In a fun and friendly atmosphere, we review barn safety, horse anatomy, care and feeding, and riding equipment. Club members also learn about the respect and responsibility required of a horse and rider team.


The club is open to all of our riders under age 18. Different events are planned throughout the year, including local community projects and shows.
