I have never taken horseback riding lessons until 6 months ago.
Now I am hooked because I have learned more about myself and about life by working with Cindy & her horses that any other experience I have had (and I have had a lot of experiences). My time at Las Trampas has inspired me to "get-past-myself" and look for ways to build with what I cannot change. What a great way to live!
Cindy at Las Trampas Stables is a great instructor. Her love of horses and riding are evident. She began with the basics, making sure I understand how a horse thinks & responds, with safety as a top priority. I have hearing loss (wear 2 hearing aids) and Cindy noticed this the first day. She made sure I could hear and encouraged me to ask questions. I hate making mistakes (as I learn) and Cindy's good-natured style and encouragement creates an environment where I can learn. I cannot tell you how important those qualities are to my developing horse-woman-ship.
My husband & I (at this stage) combine lessons with trail-rides in the Sunol Wilderness (Wrangler is Cindy's husband: Gary). Its great to practice what we learn out in the regional park!
I have to also say a word about the community at Las Trampas.
The folks who teach, board their horses and visit the stables have all been encouraging and welcoming. I love that there are kids around taking lessons or "dragging" their parents to see the horses. Its so refreshing to exit the City and enter the Country with the easy-does-it humor that is just part of the Las Trampas culture.
Cindy, Gary and the whole Las Trampas team are one of the reasons I have resisted a job transfer. My work with them is hugely valuable to me. I'll stay put for now!
