At Royal Heaven Farm, students learn to ride horses against the beautiful backdrop of the San Pasqual Valley. Regardless of the pupil's stated goals for riding—from just-for-pleasure to competing in local and national show circuits—instructors seek to produce well-rounded riders. To do this, they cover all aspects of horsemanship, ranging from in-the-saddle technique to grooming and tacking. Riders choose from the disciplines of hunting, jumping, and equitation, but can expect primary emphasis to be placed upon safety, both in and out of the pen.
