Located at Sunset Ranch in beautiful Carmel Valley, California, Silver Spur Riding School is a perfect place for you and/or your child to learn the intricacies of riding horses and everything else that goes along with proper horsemanship. Our horses are reliable, safe and easy mounts to learn on. Our instructors have many years of experience handling horses, teaching and working with riders of all ages/experience levels. The facility is a 10+ acre ranch with 5 large arenas to ride in. With year round temperatures averaging in the 70's, it's hard not to love riding at such a picturesque facility.

At Silver Spur we emphasize safe and correct handling of the horse from the ground up. You will learn everything from haltering and grooming your horse to the fine details of riding. Safety is our top priority, and to ensure that we spend extra time the first few lessons teaching you all the proper techniques both on the ground and in the saddle.

We have both english and western equipment available and our horses are very well trained in both disciplines. All of the horses you will ride are registered Quarter Horses or Paint Horses, breeds known for their calm disposition and forgiving nature. Most of our horses have been in our care since they were very young, so our instructors know them inside and out. Because of their background as nationally ranked show horses, every horse you ride is finely trained. This allows you to focus on becoming a better rider, rather than correcting the horse's mistakes constantly. Read more about our wonderful horses here!

Congratulations to head instructor, Lindsay LaPlante on her success at the AQHA WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS! She and her horse Mac N Cheese Please (Noodle) placed 3rd in a very tough Jr. Trail class.
