Sacred Cross founder Ashley Mason has transformed her extensive background in horseback riding and show jumping into a unique training program held at stables tucked into redwood forests. Dressed in long pants and heeled shoes, students begin English-style horseback-riding lessons with the basics, including getting to know their horse and avoiding the ones with razor-sharp hooves. After instructors teach students to groom and equip steeds for human accompaniment, pupils hop into the saddle. Lessons at Sacred Cross focus equal parts on education and enjoyment, and horseback-riding lessons for young ones can impart a sense of responsibility, teach empathy, and stop them from trying to lead the dog into a canter.
