We know that finding a quality horseback riding program in the Los Angeles area is difficult so we are pleased to offer this very special experience at our camp. As part of our low-tech solution for a high-tech childhood, nothing beats a trail ride in our rustic canyon.
Tumbleweed offers equestrian services during the camp day and afterwards. Our summer and winter camps include horseback riding for campers entering 1st grade and above. Twilight Horseback Riding lessons are available to campers and the community in the afternoons, after the camp day. Both opportunities help to expand the knowledge and enthusiasm for horseback riding and care. Both programs ensure safety through experienced wranglers, and proper equipment (saddles, bridles, helmets), and teach program in Western style horseback riding.
Our wranglers are experienced equestrians who have grown up with our Tumbleweed Horse Program. Their expertise has helped shape a program dedicated to sharing the joy of horsemanship and the importance for safety.
Our gentle horses have been a part of our Tumbleweed family for many years…even longer than some wranglers! Their familiarity with our arena, trails, and program, make them ideal for teaching riders of all ages and abilities.
Learning Beyond the Arena:
We aspire to teach our campers the importance of patience, confidence, and respect for our natural surroundings. The values we want to instill in our riders are no different at our horse programs. Being able to care for and control much larger animals is a great way to experience a sense of self-confidence and accomplishment.
