Our barn in Odessa, FL is a safe, fun, and supportive environment. We emphasize the respect and responsibility needed to make a successful horse and rider team that will exceed goals.
We offer private riding lessons, horse boarding and training, horse show competition, summer and holiday camps, and a horsemanship club. Our highly trained lesson horses can accommodate any skill level.
In 2017, we won Reserve World Champion of the American Saddlebred Breed Ambassador. In addition to winning ribbons at local, regional, and national levels, many riders notice personal growth in responsbility and self-confidence.

Camps are offered during spring break, summer, and winter holidays. They are divided by age groups (Tiny Tots Camp ages 4-8, Horsemanship Camp ages 8-14, and Teen Camp ages 13-17). Campers will learn about horses and proper care, do fun activities, and get to ride. Held rain or shine, it's a great way to stay active and make new friends.
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!
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!
