2014 Horse Camp is better
MORE HORSES, MORE OUTINGS, MORE FRIENDS AND MORE FUN!
Our summer and holiday horse camps aim to teach children (ages 6-12) about the wonderful world of horses. Through horse-related games and activities, campers learn about the care of horses, their characteristics, breeds, colors, and safe handling--both on the ground and while mounted--in a fun-filled environment. Children are supervised by trained staff and counselors and learn horsemanship skills from horses suitable for the young rider. Kids Horse Camp is designed for all levels of riders--from a child's first experience with a horse to an experienced junior rider who shows hunt seat, dressage or western.

Introducing the new TES fast-tack service!
We understand your busy schedule...
Now riding can be easier and much less time consuming with our new fast-tack service!
- save up to an hour of your time, every lesson
- free up time on busy weekends or during after school hours
- make lessons less stressful
- less worry about losing lesson time to tacking up
Utilize our fast tack service. TES staff will tack and untack for you. The horse will be ready to ride when you arrive.
When you're done riding our staff will cool off, groom and put away your horse.
Just $15 when ordered with your lesson reservation, or $20 when ordered the day of the lesson. Tacking fees are paid directly to the office at the time you pay for lessons, so no need to worry about carrying cash.
As you are all aware, Carol Derry is celebrating 20 years with TES. Last Sunday more than 50 of her former and present students surprised her with a celebration party. As our head instructor and loyal TES friend, we should all take time to congratulate her. TES is better off because Carol found us and made a major contribution to the riding knowledge of hundreds of students. Her personal leadership, passion and knowledge of dressage helped make TES the premier riding school in California.
In honor of this occasion, we are naming our dressage ring, “The Carol Derry Dressage Court”. The ring will carry her name as the venue for our future dressage lessons and schooling shows.
Congratulations, Carol! We look forward to many more years of your leadership and friendship.
Horsing around in class

From the Glendale News-Press
The Los Angeles Equestrian Center on Wednesday was transformed into a classroom for 27 R. D. White Elementary School students who took a lesson in equestrian lingo, tacking techniques and horseback riding.
"They are so pretty," said Jessica Galan, 8. "I like the color of them. And I like that they are so gentle, you don't have to worry that they will get angry or bite you."
The participating students are all part of the R.D. White Early Educational Extended Learning Program (EEELP), which serves working parents by providing a structured learning environment for children during after school hours and on district student-free days.
Head teacher Linda Makarzec developed a horse-related lesson plan for the students upon their request. They were inspired, she said, after reading several horse-related books, including "Black Beauty." And their interest continues to grow, she said.
Students have studied the history of the horse as it relates to developments in agriculture and transportation, as well as sport and leisure activities, Makarzec said.
Our School is conveniently located at the Los Angeles Equestrian Center in Burbank, California. We offer group, private and semi-private lessons for children and adults in Dressage, Hunt Seat, Jumping and Western for beginning through advanced level riders. Special activities include school horse shows, lectures and clinics, summer camps, riding clubs, working student program and horse leasing program. For students who board horses at the LAEC, we provides a wide range of special services from supplemental feeding to training.
