Horsemanship Lessons and more with The Academy

The relationship with the Horse is the most amazing relationship your child will experience!

With multiple horses to choose from, San Diego Trail Company will partner you with one of the horses according to your ability, size and, equally as important, personality and temperament of the horse. Rides are designed with no more than two to ensure a more customized ride with the wranglers. Please contact us if you have special reservation requests. All reservations may be done online by using our calendar to Schedule Your Ride Now.
