Welcome to the Sam Houston Equestrian Center ! 

We are a full service equestrian facility. We offer year-round lessons for riders of all levels and ages. We also offer camps for children and teenagers during school holidays. You do not need to own a horse, a saddle or anything beyond jeans and boots. Our lesson horses and ponies include seasoned veterans for beginners and a wide range of high quality mounts for experienced riders. If you own a horse, we offer boarding as well as training services.

Our stables are located on 25 acres just 15 minutes south of downtown Houston on 288 near Beltway 8. Our facilities include a spacious covered arena so you do not have to worry about the weather. Attached to the arena is a large camper classroom. We also create gift certificates if you're looking for that perfect present for a rider.

Grazing Rules for Boarders and Riders

Graze in Designated Places only and it changes daily. Ask HELEN for location.



Near sprinklers

Areas cut by the mower for evening grass feeding.

Please help us maintain our grass clipping areas for good quality green suppliments.

When grazing, horses must be on a lead rope, accompanied by a human so we have no loose horses.

No grazing when the ground is wet.

Thank YOU!

Our new instructor is Harper. She's been working with the campers and is accomplished in both English, jumping and western. Harper is from the Midwest and worked as a trail ride leader in National parks. She studied English riding in Arizona. Our plan here is to work some of the other jumping horses and train the younger ponies.  


School administrators can schedule a tour of Sam Houston Equestrian Center by calling


Students see a wide variety of horses from jumpers to ponies. Students can groom a pony or lift up a saddle in the tack room. Kids and adults who garden can see how the stable recycles horse manue into compost. Big tractors are a big hit too.









School teachers with a passion for horses are invited to train with Sam Houston Equestrian Center as volunteers in our beginner program and in our special needs classes. Compensation will be riding time and instruction. This could also become a paid position. We are looking for summer camp help and anytime kids are out of school. Join our team.
