The BCEC is also home to the Bell Canyon Riding Academy (BCRA), which welcomes everyone, from beginners to advanced riders, children, and adults. Designed to develop educated, well-rounded riders, the BCRA aims to create a positive, lifelong connection between rider and horse. The staff fosters a fun, instructive environment, where correct principles are taught from the beginning and safety is a top priority. A 30-minute private lesson starts at $60 for residents and $65 for non-residents. The BCRA also provides semi-private group lessons and very popular Pony Camps several times a year, where kids can learn how to ride and care for horses. The school horses include Mia, a distinguished California equitation horse, and Rushmore, a patient mount who spent many years as a Boy Scouts horse, trail horse, and special companion to troubled youths. Besides the magic of the Bell Canyon landscape, it is the love and stewardship of the residents in Bell Canyon who have contributed to the renaissance of the equestrian center that have made it a lovely and loved feature of Bell Canyon. n Bell Canyon Equestrian Center 29 Baymare Rd.
