At Mill Creek Equestrian Center, our goal is to create competent, safe riders. We teach English riding lessons to all rider levels from beginners to advanced. New students start off in private lessons until an instructor can place them into an appropriate group lesson when they are ready. Our group riding lessons usually have four to eight riders and meet weekly. Most of the group lessons comprise of ½ flat work and ½ jumping. We have Dressage groups that are flat-work only. Students may also schedule private or semi-private lessons in either Jumping or Dressage. Lessons are available Tuesday through Sunday and we are closed on Mondays and certain holidays. For the competitive rider we specialize in Combined Training (Eventing) and Dressage and attend most of the Horse Trials in Area VI (California) as well as many of the local Dressage shows. Several times a year, our competitive riders have the opportunity to go out and school at several of the cross-country facilities where we compete.

Our most current lesson prices and riding lesson schedule are listed below. Check our Policies page for information on appropriate riding attire, general safety rules, etc.

Mill Creek also runs several special riding programs. We have a Children's Horse Program on the weekends throughout the year and daily during the the Summer. Further information is provided on our Children's Horse Program page. We also host a number of camps for Horses in the Hood during the summer, a fabulous non-profit organization that gives inner-city children an opportunity to ride and learn about horses.

Please note: We no longer have the horseback riding program through UCLA Recreation.
