Learning to Ride in Rolling Hills on the Palos Verdes Peninsula

Every day I see a lot of homes and neighborhoods. Based on what I see and value personally, Rolling Hills on the Palos Verdes Peninsula is one of the best of places in the South Bay to live.

A distinct and valuable quality of living in Rolling Hills or other places on the Palos Verdes Peninsula is being able to walk out your front door and become immersed in nature.  You are at peace, surrounded by fresh air, tranquility and beauty whether you are driving (at the posted speed limit, of course!), walking or horseback riding.

Rolling Hills and Rolling Hills Estates are rare equestrian communities – most other neighborhoods lack space to accommodate barns, corrals and riding rings. However, there are some areas in Palos Verdes Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes where horses can be accomodated.

I am a Rolling Hills resident myself and for many reasons feel extremely fortunate to live here. Last year I added one more – I began taking riding lessons and am enjoying a whole new benefit that Palos Verdes Rolling Hills offers.

Once a complete beginner, I have progressed to something akin to a karate “green belt” with the help of skilled trainers from California Horsemanship, Kitty and Kim, and their patient horses Dali, Ransom and Echo. It is fortunate that the only time I’ve fallen is when I tripped over the benches at Ernie Howlett Park while an observer at the equestrian training clinic!

Happy Trails!
