Four horses and horseback riders on a grassy hill in Chandler.

Learn to Horseback Ride Around Chandler

If you're looking for something different to do this weekend, try horseback riding! It offers a fun way to spend time outdoors as you strengthen your muscles and improve your balance. The best horseback riding facilities near our apartments in Chandler include:

Triple L Stables

Whether you want to ride for fun or become a competitor, head to the Triple L Stables. Nestled in nearby Gilbert, it offers lessons for all abilities and helps students develop a lifelong passion for horseback riding. The instructors boast years of experience. They enjoy working with all skill levels and will soon have you riding like a pro.

Celebrity Ranch

Formerly known as PM Show Horses, Celebrity Ranch has been a Chandler fixture since 1997. It's owned by the mother and daughter duo of Mary Plotkin and Danielle Miller. Mary enjoys breeding and caring for horses, while Danielle is the ranch's riding instructor. She started training horses as a teenager and now offers dressage lessons and clinics for all skill levels.

Apex Riding Academy

Nationally recognized, the Apex Riding Academy is where Julie Daniel's horses and riders have earned local, regional, and national titles in every discipline. The academy welcomes everyone from total beginners to seasoned riders. The instructors offer group lessons by age and ability, and while they focus on riding, you will also learn proper horse care. Regardless of experience, all new students start with a 30-minute private session. Lessons are offered daily (Sundays are groups only) between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

After your lesson, head home and prepare a delicious sheet pan dinner. Finally, if you would like to become a resident of Vive, please contact our leasing team. They'll gladly offer a tour where you can discover our apartments in Chandler firsthand.
