What could be better than feeling the breeze in your hair as you fly through the air, horse and rider becoming one? Monte Vista Christian School offers the unique opportunity for students to experience horseback riding lessons during school hours! The equestrian program at MVC in Watsonville, California allows students to forego the traditional physical education experience and instead learn about horses. Participants taking part in this quality horsemanship program enjoy feeding, grooming, saddling, and riding horses. The equestrian program at this private school in Santa Cruz County is run by the experts at Belmont Training Stable. Horse boarding is also available for students and residents of surrounding areas such as Gilroy, Morgan Hill, San Jose, and Salinas. Students taking part in this program have a break in their day when they kick off their sneakers and pull on their boots. Taking care of and riding the horses at this California equestrian center can be a wonderfully therapeutic experience; an opportunity to take a break from the daily stresses of school and retreat to the barn to spend some time with friendly and well-trained horses.
