Riding Lessons in Northern California

Hey, I'm new here. My name is laura and I used to ride & compete in english riding (hack, hunters, etc). I have not been able to ride in about 3 years. The barn I used to ride at was in Rancho Cordova, CA but my trainer has since moved cross country. Does anyone here know of any nice barns in Northern California that offer english riding lessons? Thanks!

No problem, I aways think that word of mouth is a better way of getting to a good riding school insted of just picking one out of a book or something. Good luck with your riding.

I would check with Penryn Oak Stables
www.penrynoakstables.com
Though they are a bit up there in cost... if they don't suit your needs they might be able to recommend another place.

There is also Los Lagos in Granite Bay - www.llhorses.com
There is a place in orangevale I'm drawing a blank on their name... it is five oak or something like that...

Good luck! (I'm right here in your area... Roseville)

What part of Northern California are you guys from?? Im visiting San Francisco soon and I've picked some instructors to have lessons with ( Allyssa Pitt and the Christiane Noelting Center are the ones im considering), Id love your opinions.


Callie, were you thinking of the Seven Oaks Dressage Center in Santa Cruz County (I think). I looked into them as well but they are to far from where Ill be (and there rules seemed a bit strict!!)

Miss Katie-
No the place I was thinking of was definitely in orangevale, Ca not Santa Cruz... here is the contact info:
Five Oak Farms
6905 Filbert Ave
Orangevale, CA 95662
Phone: (916) 988-7604

Five Oak is a small facility, but Hunter jumper specific. Los Lagos is HUGE and nice with lots of trainers... and Penryn Oak is a medium sized facility that is really a beautiful place... I'm sure any of them could point you in the right direction if you didn't feel at hoe at their facilities.

Kirsten93- Penryn oak would be closest for you...

Good luck!
