From beginners to experts, children to grandparents, Western to English, we have a horseback riding experience for everyone.
We are truly a unique equestrian center offering a broad range of equine activities for the Truckee Reno Tahoe area including summer horse camps, scenic trail rides, and training in both English and Western disciplines. Our focus is on helping individuals communicate and connect with their equine partner. Out here, no words, text messages, or photos will connect you with a horse - you have to show up, take a chance, and find a way to connect on a natural level. Are you up for the adventure?
A Day at Piping Rock
Ultimate Tahoe Adventures Host Dreu Murin took the short drive from Reno for us to show him around our place in Truckee, California. Check out what Piping Rock offers in this great episode featuring trail rides and a short lesson - a great intro to horseback riding in the Truckee Reno Tahoe area. Thanks Ultimate Tahoe Adventures for featuring us!
We offer trail riding programs that are less crowded, less dusty, and more personal. If you owned your own horse, this would be a ride that you would share with your friends or family. Our trails cross mountain streams, meander through Jeffrey pines with the smell of sage is in the air. This is the Tahoe that you love.
We offer week long summer camps for children ages 4-16. Camp is a great way for children and teens to learn about horses and to advance their riding skills. Featuring quality instruction, well behaved horses, and a fun supportive group environment, we pride ourselves on a quality experience for each camper.
Sierra Riding Academy
Sierra Riding Academy is for serious students who want to take their horsemanship to the next level. Instruction & training are offered in equitation and jumpers year round with a focus on safety and sound horsemanship fundamentals. Not just for locals, SRA also offers seasonal lesson packages and school horse leases for visitors.
LEssons & Clinics
Our talented staff of trainers and instructors can help you get your horseback riding and horsemanship to the next level. From private one hour lessons to all day clinics, we have a range of programs available in both Western & English.
Horse Sales & Leases
After a few years of hard work helping introduce people to horseback riding, many of our horses are ready to go to their forever home. The bond between horse and owner is special and unfortunately very difficult to cultivate in our commercial setting. So take a look, maybe you will find your equine match!
