Lessons

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 cancellations at least 24 hours in advance.
