My grand daughter participated in riding lessons and Ranch Days at Las Trampas last year, and she loved it.
The kids learn about horse anatomy, horse psychology, horse care and barn work as well as only riding, which is so important to being able to be around horses. They also learn how to be responsible and do required chores in a fun, supportive environment. The kids are outdoors, getting strong in the fresh air.
My grand daughter was out of state all summer, and we are hoping to get her set up at Las Trampas for lessons and Ranch Days again as soon as we can. It is a wonderful resource, and I am grateful we found it.
