Gambler's Choice

Gambler's Choice, located just West of Dover, Delaware; is a full service Equestrian Center and boarding facility. Purchased in 2007, what used to be "Magical Acres" became Gambler's Choice Equestrain Center, LLC., a family owned business. Situated on 55 acres of countryside of West Dover in the center of Delaware.

It isn't like boarding with someone who has an extra stall available, at Gambler's Choice there is always someone around. We have volunteers, staff and visitors. Your equine will not be isolated and lonely. Your equine will have access to other horses or ponies, there is constant supervision and they will be cared for by people who know and love equines.

Whether you are a beginner, new to the exciting world of horses, or have been riding for years, our focus is on helping you to achieve your equestrian goals.Our school horses are all safe, friendly and experienced. Our facilities are meant to keep our riders and horses safe, comfortable and happy. You are never too young or too old to begin riding. Join us today!

Indoor/Outdoor Arenas

Indoor Arena

Our 100' x 200' clear span indoor arena allows for all weather riding. The arena is watered and harrowed regularly to limit dust and to refresh footing. New footing was installed in the spring of 2008. From the lighting to the maintenance equipment, to the devotion to excellence, Gambler's Choice wants you to enjoy every trip to the farm.

Arena

The indoor arena provides comfort when it's hot outside and when the weather just doesn't permit riding comfortably outdoors. The indoor arena also has lights for night riding.

Outdoor Arena

Our 150' x 300' outdoor sand arena is surrounded by a 3' fence and is equipped with jumps.

Arena

Both indoor and outdoor arenas feature elevated judges stands, along with a on-site PA system for events. A selection of raised cross rails, letters and cones are available to help you simulate a competitive atmosphere during your training sessions.

Appropriate Riding Attire

Again, with safety in mind, we offer the following guidelines for appropriate dress while riding with us at Gambler's Choice Equestrian Center:

Saftey
SEI/ASTM Helmets must be worn by ALL RIDERS when mounted. Gambler's Choice provides helmets for our beginning students until they have the opportunity to purchase their own.
Proper footwear is required. Boots should have a hard sole and 1/2" heel. Paddock boots are recommended.
Straight leg jeans are appropriate for beginning lessons. Students may find that breeches or jodphurs are more comfortable as they progress.
T-shirts, polos and the like are appropriate top layers. As the weather cools, students will want to add sweatshirts, polar fleece and/or waist length jackets for warmth.
Riding gloves are appropriate for all riders, year round.
