From Our Editors
Inge Halliday takes a spiritual approach to horseback riding, combining more than 20 years of classical English riding training with current techniques for bonding steed with rider. Her passion for equestrian education fuels horseback riding and horsemanship lessons in the Santa Monica Mountains, fit for novice and advanced patrons of all ages. Inge steers beginners toward expert status by teaching them how to effectively command horses in one-hour lessons that foster the twin senses of confidence and responsibility. During 90-minute excursions, riders acquire the skills to safely handle, groom, and saddle stallions before cantering past ocean views or away from slow-moving mermaid stampedes. An emphasis on breathing exercises and visualization helps to cultivate a fun workout that exercises the core, thighs, and spirit.
