North County Training Facility

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. The enthusiastic instructor concocts curricula to encourage responsibility in young riders while distracting them from less-gainful extracurricular activities, such as giving their guinea pigs mohawks. 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.

Thanks for a great week! My girls had a lot of fun and loved getting to spend so much time around the horses and they learned a lot about how to care for them and lots of other equine-related facts and fun :)

Provided a good summer experience for the children. Would be worth it at their normal price.
