Linda and Andy Levy — recent transplants to Point Loma from Boston — are launching horseback-riding lessons in East County at the Triple S Ranch in Lakeside.

Linda will teach horseback riding at the ranch, which sits at the base of El Capitan Mountain on El Monte Road and boasts four riding rings, multiple round pens and direct access to the San Diego River trail system.

The Levys will work together to manage the riding program they have started at Triple S Ranch. Andy will schedule lessons and manage the business end of the program. In addition to teaching riding, Linda will also train horses. With 35 years of experience training horses and riders, Linda is an energetic and gifted teacher. Her direct and compassionate style enables her students to progress as riders and helps their horses remain happy in their work.

“Horses are often misunderstood because they are large and can be strong at times, but most domesticated horses are very gentle and crave the attention humans give them,” said Linda. “Horses are such wonderful teachers, they can mirror our emotions, sometimes telling us things about ourselves we didn‘t even know. Horses do not lie; they have strong human radar, telling us what they need if we take the time to listen.”

Andy is complimentary of Linda’s skills.

“Linda offers ‘A’ horse-show-level instruction to individuals who may not be interested in competing,” said Andy. “Working on horsemanship skills promotes a sense of accomplishment, a sense of empowerment and a special relationship between horse and rider.”
