If you’re looking to switch up your workout routine, try horseback riding. As you walk, trot, or canter, you’ll help improve your flexibility, body awareness, and core strength. When you’re ready for some lessons, head to one of these businesses near our Dallas apartments for some horseback riding fun:

Dallas Equestrian Center 

A premier facility, the Dallas Equestrian Center offers some of the best horseback riding lessons in the region. Co-founder Stacy Lane-Sanderson boasts years of experience. She helps students become well-educated riders and once coached Baylor University’s women’s equestrian team to a national championship. The center welcomes everyone from first-time riders to experienced competitors. You’ll learn on a gentle school horse and can enjoy private or group lessons.

Merriwood Ranch

Founded in 1956, the Merriwood Ranch offers “English horseback riding for every generation.” The instructors offer lessons between August and May. They provide personalized instruction and invite everyone to give horseback riding a try. Students are paired with the perfect horse, and you can progress at your own pace. The ranch holds lessons Tuesday through Saturday, starting at 10:00 a.m.

Windmill Stables 

At Windmill, you’ll find a state-of-the-art stable complete with a 21-stall barn and two outdoor lighted arenas. Owners Tyler and Erin Hufstetler are Dallas area natives who enjoy bringing horseback riding fun to their hometown. They provide a casual setting, and you may find their four young kids working around the stables. The lessons include riding, groundwork, and horse care, and you will start with an introductory session before moving on to group or private lessons. 

When the weather keeps you indoors, enjoy an online fitness class. You can try yoga and much more. If you would like to call The Lofts at Mockingbird Station home, then please contact us. Our leasing team will show you our apartments in Dallas firsthand.
