Hit the trail with a guided ride at Work Ranch in San Miguel. Work Ranch is a private, family-operated working cattle ranch and farm with 12,000 cattle-studded acres of trails that can get you, and your family and friends, away from it all for awhile on the back of a horse. Sharon Jantzen gets the scoop.
Former Pony Clubber, Eventer and Dressage rider who balanced training and showing with getting a college degree (from Cal Poly SLO), becoming a wife and raising a family. Presently she is making Dressage comeback on her Connemara Pony Whisper as well as dabbling in Mounted Archery on a Rocky Mountain Gaited Horse, Carrera.
When I was younger we clunked around in those tall English boots to work around the horses and to ride, and show . . . erg . . . and mine were rubber which made them even worse, as the sweat and heat built up in them. It was like graduating, to move into real-leather tall boots. Then along came “muckers” – a rubber sole with leather upper ankle boot – which were the first step towards paddock boots for the English Rider. Sharon Jantzen tells her story of finding English riding boots in SLO County.
