Horseback Riding Lessons and Trail Rides

Horseback Riding Lessons

We offer horseback riding lessons to people of all ages. our training is customized to fit each student, depending upon previous riding experience or lack of it.

We teach good basic riding skills. This includes learning how to balance properly, how to position your body for the maximum in horse control with the least amount of effort, and what I call "horse sociology", which is learning how to understand what the horse is thinking and why it is doing what it's doing so you can respond to it correctly.

For those who have more experience the training will include more advanced riding on more spirited horses.

Most riding lessons include a short ride on our trails so one can apply what one has learned and just relax a little.

Our lessons are generally between 1 & 1/2 hours on horseback.

For our younger students, who cannot ride that long, we adjust our time and price accordingly.

Guided Trail Rides

Ride through some of the most beautiful scenery in Southern California. Our trails are located in scenic Lockwood Valley. At an elevation of close to 5000 feet, the Los Padres National Forest, near Frazier Park, California, surrounds this valley.

This area offers a variety of terrain, from mountain streams, to sagebrush covered landscape, to rolling hills and foothills covered with pine and oak trees.

From the valley floor we'll ascend up to the surrounding ridges and hilltops where one can see the entire valley. There will be more than one breathtaking view to take in and enjoy along the way.

Our wildlife sightings have included valley and mountain quail, various other bird species including songbirds and raptors, bobcats, California Blacktail Deer, reptiles, squirrels and chipmunks. On these very trails we've tracked mountain lions and black bears.

These guided trail rides are at least one hour long on our gentle and experienced horses.

And speaking of horses, we have a variety of breeds and crossbreds to choose from. With good looks, personality and surefootedness, you couldn't ask for more to enhance your trail ride.

Vista Picnic Trail Ride & Meal

Experience a wonderful ride that winds through the meadows, forests and ridges. Toward the end of the ride you'll arrive on a beautiful plateau where your meal will be waiting.

You'll get off your horses and sit down at a table prepared especially for you. As you enjoy your meal and the natural scenery around you, your horses will be patiently munching on their own meal nearby.

After dining you'll get back on your horses for the last part of your ride, making your way back to American Jousting Alliance Training Headquarters.
