We have a unique riding club at my ranch in Poway where horse lovers of all ages come together to learn all about horse care and riding in a fun family environment. You can check us out on Yelp under Clare's Riding Club in Poway also.
Being around people who love horses and want to take their time enjoying being around them.
Our daughter is with Clare ‘s Riding Club for over four years and she loves it. The clare b is like one big family. Several kids started at very young age and stayed on until they left for college. The children learn everything about riding and taking good care of a horse, including riding skills, horsemanship, grooming, feeding, veterinary care, etc. The lessons are open ended so they can stay longer and help before and after their lesson, if they like. The older, more experienced students who are enrolled in the student assistant program help with the lessons and are great role models. Parents are welcome to stay, watch the lessons, or walk with the group when they go on trails. I highly recommend Clare’s Riding Club.
Clare is amazing with the kids as well as the horses. My daughter is in love with all of the horses and helpers at Clare's and is learning so much about horsemanship as well as riding. It is such a special place and I am so happy my daughter gets to be involved!
After talking by phone and filling out a questionnaire, we set up their first lesson where I walk them around introducing our ranch, students and horses, have another student pair with them, ask about previous horse experience find a good horse match for them, learn and have lots of fun!
