Have you always wondered how the life of an equestrian is like? In this 2 hour event, we will tour the Barn and the Carriage Room Museum in the Folger Stable. You will also get a 1 hour basic horseback riding lesson (Western style).
Originally belonging to the Folger family (of Folgers Coffee fame) this estate was used as a warm country getaway from San Francisco's cold summers. In 2010 the Folger Stable and surrounding buildings opened to the public after extensive renovations. The site remains an enchanting example of the bygone ""great estates"" era. The original Carriage Room within the main stable has been transformed into a magnificent museum that showcases local history in the early 1900s, including the lumbering, farming, and great estate eras.
Our 1 hour horseback riding lesson is designed to assist riders in developing a good seat, mastering basic riding commands, controlling speed and improving communication between horse and rider. They cater to riders of all levels and experience, whether it be your first time in the saddle, or you are a lifelong rider.
To have a more focused experience, the group of 8 will be split into 2. While 4 are having their horseback riding lessons, the other 4 will be touring the barn/museums.
