|Established in 1973, Mill Creek Equestrian Center offers English riding lessons for all levels of equestrians, from pleasure riders to advanced competitors, both children and adults. Our riding program focuses primarily on Eventing and Dressage training. We have many regular group lessons and semi-private or private riding lessons can be scheduled at your convenience. During the summer, we offer a Children's Horse Program and we also have a year-round College Riding Program.
As you will soon discover from reading about our teaching staff, we offer some of the finest riding instruction available. Quality school horses are available for lessons for those who are not horse owners (sorry, we do not rent horses for trail rides).
Mill Creek is located in the Santa Monica Mountains and is surrounded by miles of riding trails. Our beautiful, well-maintained facility is located in Old Topanga Canyon on twenty-eight oak-shaded acres. Even though Mill Creek seems a world away from the city, it is a short drive from virtually all parts of Los Angeles County, particularly West Los Angeles and all of the Westside, Pacific Palisades, Malibu, the San Fernando Valley and the South Bay.
Horse Training & Boarding
Mill Creek is a full service boarding and training facility. Comprehensive horse training is available from most of our instructors. Our excellent school program has made Mill Creek one of the leading Event barns in California. Eventing or Combined Training, which includes dressage, show jumping and cross-country riding, has always been popular in Europe and has become increasingly popular in the United States. Mill Creek competitors travel to all major California Horse Trials and have won hundreds of individual and dozens of team championships. Our students have also become strong contenders on the local Dressage Show circuit. In addition, we normally host two Horse Shows a year on the grounds, exclusively for our own students. Riders of both private horses and school horses are welcome to compete.
Mill Creek supplements its training program by hosting clinics given by top professionals. Many horse-world dignitaries have visited Mill Creek in recent years. We are also fortunate enough to have Mette Rosencrantz, a well known and respected Dressage trainer, based at Mill Creek to provide support to our highest-level Dressage competitors.
