Monte Vista Christian School strives to provide all students with a broad learning experience through a number of methods. MVC has teamed up with Belmont Training Stable, a renowned, professional equestrian center in Watsonville, to give equestrian training to students of San Jose and the neighboring areas. In place of traditional classes, students at this Gilroy area school can receive horseback riding lessons. Equestrian training can be substituted for standard PE sessions at this Santa Cruz County school. Belmont Training Stable, which contains two huge horse arenas, is located on MVC’s gorgeous, sprawling campus. Besides taking horseback riding lessons, students may also board their horses at this Salinas area facility. The equestrian training offered at this California school is available for beginner to advanced riders. Students who desire to compete may take advantage of Belmont Training Stable’s involvement with the Interscholastic Equestrian Association. Belmont’s IEA teams have been named Zone 10 High Point Champions for many consecutive years.
