My First Horseback Riding Lesson at Ivy Gate Farm [Video]
Tuesday March 20, 2012see more by jen
Last week I checked off one of my Life List things. Life List = Bucket List but I prefer it as I think it sounds a little more uplifting, don’t you?! And one of my Life List things was to take a horseback riding lesson.
(Side note: I had a bad experience on a horse one time on the beach in Ensenada when I was about 19 so I hadn’t been back in the saddle since and had always wanted to tackle this fear by taking a lesson the RIGHT WAY!)
And there is no better place in Orange County to do so than Ivy Gate Farm in San Juan Capistrano. Ivy Gate Farm is a hunter / jumper training facility in OC and trains people of all levels from children up to adults, beginner (like me) up to people that go to the top horse shows. I wrote about Ivy Gate HERE if you want more info on the amazing facility.
And it was completely exhilarating. I am also afraid it might be a tad addicting. My experience is outlined in the short video above. Hope you enjoy!
