Most lessons are held at White Horse Polo Ranch in Escondido, but can also be held at other locations.. With an arena, round pen and a bridal path, riders can learn the foundations of horsemanship at the ranch facility.
Trail lessons can be held at a variety of locations. The Daley Ranch is beautiful at this time of year with wildflowers blooming and the fragrance of mountain sage in the air. Rancho Cuyamaca State Park, just past Julian, is an exceptionally gorgeous trail lesson setting for more advanced riders.
If you have seen horses riding on a trail around the county, there is a good chance we can hold a lesson at that location.
Moonlight trail lessons are growing in popularity, and are held in the beautiful San Dieguito river park on the Coast to Crest trail. This is a scenic, but easy trail and usually the first trail lesson setting for beginners.
Because White Horse Polo Ranch is a small business we can customize any of the lesson plans to fit your needs and schedule. In return please honor our time by making any cancelations at least 24 hours in advance.

Holiday Horse Camp
This Holiday Season I am offering Horse Camp January 2nd 3rd and 4th for $99/day. The schedule will be 9 to 5 with any students arriving early or staying late being put to work feeding the horses and helping with chores. Horse Camp students would join the group lessons on the Wednesday and Friday that week, so it is a very good value and lots of fun. The main focus of this camp is riding and I would encourage adults to enjoy the benefits of acting like a kid at horse camp as well. Riding all day is a great way to improve your skills. Let’s have fun this holiday!
One popular package is a private lesson and a trail adventure. This $165 gift package insures the rider has a chance to become comfortable riding in a controlled environment before hitting the trail.
A real “kid pleaser” is a package of one private lesson followed by 4 group lessons for $270. The private lesson sets the tone for safety and confidence, and the multiple rides of the group lessons carry your gift into next year.
Another way to go is “Horse Camp” days here at White Horse Ranch. These are offered January 2nd, 3rd and 4th of the Holiday break and are $99 each day. You can give the whole three day set, or one or two days depending upon your schedule and budget.
Polo is also available for gift certificates. Call to customize your Polo Package.
