At CALIFORNIA RIDING ACADEMY all students, whether beginning or advanced, are encouraged to develop their personal horsemanship skills. If you’ve never touched a horse, we can help you gain the confidence and skill-set required to handle them. If you haven’t ridden in years, we can help you regain your confidence, skill-set AND fitness.
With a combined experience of more than 100 years, our team of horse professionals is well qualified to take your riding to the next level.

If you used to enjoy Dressage or Jumping and would like to
get back in riding shape, we can help you.


Our beginning students, both men and women, will learn how to properly
handle a horse on the ground, not just ride.

Many people can get on a well-trained horse and go, but the key to being a
really good rider is understanding your mount and what makes them tick.
We go into the details of riding and "reading" your mount.


Depending on your personal aspirations, we will tailor a riding program to meet your goals. Our Horses and Ponies are well-schooled and well-cared for; they will help you achieve your personal riding aspirations. Visit the Meet Our Horses Page to see a profile of your horse. Don't forget to try our Who's Who Horse Quiz to see
how well you know each horse!
We are conveniently located just two minutes off Hwy 280 in Menlo Park.
