Join Us On A Tour

Nestled along the L.A. River and just minutes from downtown Los Angeles, Taking the Reins is dedicated to helping girls learn how to navigate their personal growth and futures by engaging with and learning from our horses in our Equestrian Facility and the natural environment in our quarter-acre Garden and Animal Husbandry Program.

TTR was founded in 1998 by two horsewomen who recognized the extraordinary potential of an equine-based, educational program for L.A.’s most under-resourced urban girls.



Prior to COVID-19, TTR hosted an Open House tour for anyone who would like to know more about our program on the 2nd Saturday of each month.

We look forward to restarting our Open House tour as soon as possible! Check back here or feel free to email us at for more information!
