Children’s Riding Groups

Monte Verde Ranch is proud to be home to the California Rangers and Blue Shadows. These non-profit organizations provide children and teenagers the opportunity to develop confidence, leadership skills, responsibility through organized equestrian programs. We encourage you to explore the opportunities these organizations can provide your child.

California Rangers

The California Rangers is the perfect organization for young adults between the ages of 9 to 18 who simply have a desire to ride horses and be a part of a team. You do not need any previous riding experience and you do not need to own your own horse. The only requirements to join The California Rangers is a willingness to learn, lack of fear and to participate in weekly practices and annual events.

Blue Shadows

The Blue Shadows is a non-profit equestrian organization dedicated to teach children of all ages how to ride horses. This organization is a mounted drill team that is based off of early cavalry drilling; so not only do members learn how to become better riders, but they will learn about drill maneuvers as well.
