HORSEBACK RIDING LESSONS AT CALIFORNIA RIDING ACADEMY

California Riding Academy offers the Best Riding Program Northern California. With our convenient upper peninsula location, we are close to San Francisco and many bay and coastal cities. Our riders receive a solid foundation in hunt seat equitation, classical riding or Western depending on your personal goals. Students can expect a fun and safe learning experience from our personable staff and team of high quality school horses and ponies. Our program values horsemanship and students learn to groom and tack-up their own horses. We offer both private and small group lessons, both half-hour (ages 7 & under only) and full-hour with discount programs for committed riders. We host frequent in-house schooling shows to introduce, or reintroduce! lesson students to the exciting horse competition world. Many of our riding school students have graduated from the riding school and progressed to be successful competitors and horse owners. Lease and purchase options available.
 
If you own a horse, inquire about our training and boarding options.

ASSESSMENT LESSON

Regardless of previous experience, all new riders must start with a private 1-hour assessment lesson. This gives us a chance to evaluate your current skill level and get to know you and visa vera!. This is a great time to discuss your goals so we can come up with a program that suits your needs.
 
After your assessment lesson and learning about your goals, we will provide a training plan. Guaranteed lessons must be taken a minimum of once per week, however, more frequent riding will ensure more rapid progress.
