RHC Riding Academy founder and head trainer, Erin Reid, a devotee to all things equine since age 5, has instructed riders of all experience levels for the past 17 years. Nine regal, well-mannered horses, many of whom own dog-eared copies of Emily Post's Etiquette, graciously conspire with instructors to teach students proper grooming and saddling techniques. Students can also explore different riding styles, such as Western, saddle seat, and dressage. Reid educates guests with a lesson in horse psychology, helping students to bond with stallions or get them to open up about complex relationships with their mothers. RHC Riding Academy outfits each rider with a helmet; guests should wear long pants and closed-toe shoes to lessons.

RHC Riding Academy

As RHC Riding Academy’s head trainer, Erin Reid shares a passion for horses that began when her family founded RHC in 1985. A devotee to all things equine since age 5, Erin quickly caught onto the finer points of riding and has instructed students for the past 19 years. Barn manager Debra Reid, who discovered her life’s passion while growing up in Kentucky, managed 70 horses at a breeding facility in Southern California and unites her experience with Erin's. Together they oversee nine horses, several of which are Arabians—prized for their distinctive beauty and superior intellects.

Students come to the facility from all backgrounds to learn proper saddling and riding techniques. Erin supplements her technical training with lessons in horse psychology, helping students bond with steeds or to get them to open up about complex relationships with their mothers. Horses in need of discipline or a hay-filled couch on which to crash can be boarded and trained at the facility, which boasts box stalls, an indoor riding arena, and a large outdoor arena.

Customer Reviews

The 3 girls had a great time learning how to care for the horses and riding them. They came home full of stories and pictures. I think they were impressed at the young ages of their "trainers". I'm sure they would love to come again.
