I want to introduce myself, I'm Faye from the Bay Area. I never grew up around horses. I grew up in HK and learning to ride was only for the rich people.

I started my first riding lesson as a adult 10 plus years ago and just decided to get back into this.

If anyone know of some good barns to learn in woodside or portola valley, let me know!!

Hi Faye, What is HK? Is that Portola Valley in California? Woodside? Are those areas around San Francisco? The HF is world wide, so posting your area can help us give you better answers. Have you had 10 years of lessons or just getting back after 10 years?

Welcome, Faye. I thought HK meant Hong Kong from the description of only rich people learning to ride.

I agree that a more specific location will help someone direct you to a good place if possible.
