Best Place for Serious Horsing Around Los Angeles 2013 

Cowboy Boot Camp

Man's best friend may be a dog, but unlike a dog, a horse actually serves as reliable transportation. For an annual fee, Cowboy Boot Camp offers riding lessons, trail rides, clinics such as "Equine Emergency & First Aid," "Clipping & Body Shaving"  and "Bit Understanding" (not the comedy bit, but there certainly are classes in L.A. for that), group activities and hanging-around time at its rugged yet lush seaside mountain property. Hard-core equestrians Lori Barnett and Jim Moore established their piece of horse heaven in 2002, with an additional location in Burbank. Riding time costs extra, but horse enthusiasts consider CBC to be worth every penny. 4 Sunnyfield Drive, Rolling Hills Estates. (310) 872-9421, cowboybootcamp.net. —Adam Gropman
