Horses on the Brain!

Katy has many resources for the horse lover in you

My family and I have joked since we moved here that Texas is the only place where you see goats in the front yards and horses in the back!  Being the country girl that I am at heart, I love that fact!  I have always loved horses, and my siblings and I were lucky enough to experience them growing up.  So I decided to do some research online about what Katy has to offer our kids as far as horseback riding lessons, and I found some interesting information. 

Here are several locations that offer lessons for children (and adults, if you are interested in experiencing time with these incredible animals for yourself!)  Circle Lake Ranch is located only one minute from I-10 on FM 1463, and they offer many services, from the basic horseback riding lessons to western and english riding styles.  They start at age seven to adult, and charge $200 monthly, for 50 minutes of riding, and 10 minutes of tack knowledge.  They also offer summer day camps, beginning in June, for $350 a week.  You can check out all the details for yourself at their website at circlelakeranch.com, or call 281-395-4311.

Another source that looks fascinating is the Blue Ribbon Meadows non-profit off Breckendorff Rd. in Katy.  Riding lessons are for everyone, again, (they didn’t specify minimum age) and cost $45 an hour for group, $50 an hour for private lessons.  This place is a neat find, as they offer horses for adoption, for a fee of only $200.  They have many horses available right now that need good homes.  Many other services, such as full boarding starting at $500 monthly, are available.  You can view all the great experiences and services ready for your enjoyment at blueribbonmeadows.com or call Barbara Jacobs (Owner, Head Trainer) at 281-371-3004.

A couple of other places were also listed online, Riding High Stable which is in Katy, and ran by Brent Workman.  Lessons start at age 5, and he can be reached at 832-528-2161 and ridinghighstables.com.  Last but not least, Bright Star Stables in Brookshire, which is only a few short miles from Katy, and can be found at brightstarstables.com or reached at 281-375-8400.  Jenee Pulliam was listed as contact.

Hopefully this has been inspiring to you, as horses and children make a great combination!  Lessons aren’t just a hobby, they teach children responsibility, a healthy respect for these great animals, and give them something to look forward to each week!  Is there a local place that I didn’t cover in this post?  Please feel free to comment on it for our other readers!  Do you have a comment on any of these places listed?  Let us know your personal experiences and how you would rate it!
