Cape is also home to Remley Equestrian Center, which offers a 4-week beginner horsemanship program through the Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Department for horse lovers of all ages. Remley also offers private and group lessons focused on how to take care of the horses and properly groom and tack them before heading to the arena. They also offer summer camps for beginner, intermediate and advanced skill levels.

Family-owned and operated for over 100 years, Rolling Hills Farm and Equine is another option for those wanting to start or hone their equine horsemanship and riding skills. Trail riding and obstacle courses are a fun addition to typical lessons at Rolling Hills.
