English Riding Lessons For All Ability Levels

Enjoy the physical, mental and emotional benefits that come with horseback riding.

Regardless of age, we believe that anyone with the passion to learn to ride can achieve their goal with patience and practice. Our expert instructors and trainers work with every type of rider from the youngest novice to the experienced veteran and every level in between.

Since 1978, San Pascual Stables has been providing excellence in equestrian training and boarding for the South Pasadena and surrounding communities.

Riders at our barn have gone on to achieve top honors in competitions nationwide including 14-year old Sophie St.Clair and her horse, Sjapoo who were ranked #1 in California in 2013. Sophie and her trainer, David Sterckx, went on to the USHJA Children’s and Adult Amateur West Regional Jumper Championship in Sacramento where she took fourth place overall for the Individual Final and her team earned the Silver Medal.

Whether you wish to ride competitively or just for pleasure, there are private and group lessons to meet your needs and horses to ride to fit your skill level.



The grounds are so beautiful and peaceful

"I miss riding at San Pascual Stables! The grounds are so beautiful and peaceful. Caroline was my trainer, and I really appreciate her teaching methods. She's very patient and encouraging, as I hadn't ridden in years. I'll be returning as soon as I can!"

A wonderful facility

A wonderful facility, very nice barns and riding/jumping areas are well maintained.  The trainers are knowledgeable and the setting is amazing, you would think you were a thousand miles outside LA.  Even if you don't ride, it is worth a trip to sit and watch the beautiful horses and trainers jump and ride in the ring.

I really enjoyed my time here

"I really enjoyed my time here.  I rode my bike past here one day and felt inclined to go inside.  I went up to a woman and asked about how i could get into learning how to ride a horse bareback.  I had prior experience riding, but not for a good 12-14 years.  She said for me to come back that saturday and she will teach me.  I did, and i am definitly going back for more!  It was so much fun, and very liberating to learn how to ride without a saddle.  "
