Horse Riding & Driving Lessons

If you’re ready to escape the hectic life of the city, consider learning to ride horses with Altadena Stables! Only 20 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, we offer a whole other world filled with horses and riding and driving lessons:

Riding Lessons - For ages 5 to adult, we offer private riding lessons for both first time riders and experienced riders looking to enhance their skills. Our program teaches from the ground up and emphasizes safety, horsemanship and good sportsmanship.

Driving Lessons - If you aren’t ready to ride or if riding isn’t for you, give driving a try! You can still capture the joy of learning an equestrian skill by driving. Fun for the whole family, driving is done through the use of a bridle and verbal commands and can add a new level of understanding in communication between you and the horse.

At Altadena Stables, we offer riding and driving lessons all year long. Whether you’re a first time rider or an experienced equestrian, we can help you achieve your goals.
