The amicable horses at Bella Oaks Stables tote riders young and old as expert instructors lead lessons and rides. Future explorers learn the ins and outs of trail riding in a one-hour lesson on the open ranch that caters to individual interests and skill levels. Instruction can last up to one hour but varies based on experience and can cover riding, horsemanship, grooming, or groundwork. Lessons also aim to build a rider’s confidence, knowledge, and respect for horses and their inscrutable postmodern paintings.

After the lesson, riders set off on the trail experience, which follows one of several trails across the rolling hills and secluded canyons of the forests in Briones Regional Park. After returning the horses to their stables, a stop at Alhambra Valley Farms greets guests with an exclusive wine- and olive-oil tasting that quenches tongues parched from singing enthusiastic trail carols.

Bella Oaks Stables

Staffed by native East Bay trail explorers and expert riding instructors, Bella Oaks Stables fosters trained and fulfilling relationships between horses and their enthusiasts. Nestled among towering oak trees and gentle rolling hills, the fleet of majestic equines tote riders through lessons, community field trips, and trail rides, all under the guidance of a doting congregation of caretakers and volunteers. Seventeen summer camps for all ages and an apprenticeship program for more advanced riders instill saddle savvy in patrons of any experience level, and those pining for nature can meander through 80 miles of lush scenery and 1 mile of sci-fi-movie scenery for an afternoon trail ride.

Customer Reviews

The apprenticeship program is age appropriate, friendly staff. My twin girls love the hands on approach! It was a blast watching their enthusiasm with wanting to care for the live stock. Summer camp here we come! Yeeeeha.
