California Riding Magazine’s Recommended Riding Schools

Programs that introduce people to horses are the lifeblood of every level of the equestrian lifestyle and critical to preserving it. Most reading this don’t need a beginning riding program themselves, but we want to inspire all horse owners and enthusiasts to educate themselves on good beginner programs to recommend to those who ask.

We’ve all had somebody ask, “Where should I go for lessons?” when we’re out and about in the real world in our boots and breeches or emitting a certain “eau d’equine” that signals our passion for horses. Sending potential riders to a reputable, welcoming beginner-friendly program is critical to getting them into the sport. A well-founded suggestion leads to a good experience that will hopefully hook a new person on horses for good, whether as a lifelong fan, eventual high-level competitor or any level in between.

Toward that end, here’s a list of schools that members of our staff can vouch for. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with any additional recommendations: we’ll be updating this list as a year-round referral source.
