The instructors at Fantasy Farms Equestrian Center help students become comfortable with horses both on and off the saddle. During private lessons, instructors focus purely on riding technique. And during more advanced horsemanship and riding sessions, the educators show serious riders how to tend to essential horse-maintenance duties, such as remembering to top off the tank with unleaded hay. The Fantasy Farms team also shares equine enthusiasm in the form of therapeutic riding sessions, which give children with autism and other cognitive disabilities the opportunity to pet and ride horses in a safe, controlled environment.

Drawing on 17 years of experience, North County Training Facility's seasoned horsewoman, Robin, oversees student-and-steed pairs as they prance beneath the shade of majestic oaks and pines on the 3-acre facility.

Lessons extend beyond riding instruction alone to include proper grooming, saddling, and bathing techniques. The school accommodates both recreational and competition-hungry riders as well as those preparing for careers as mounted insurance salesmen.
