CALIFORNIA RANGERS is a non-profit youth equestrian organization modeled after the equestrian Cavalry of the 1800's. The organization strives to help young people develop skills in horsemanship, drill maneuvers, leadership, self-respect, and accepting responsibility. In addition to internal competition within the California Rangers, we perform in outside equestrian events. We have been awarded first place champions for California State Junior and Senior Drill Team, California State Junior Colorguard, Western States Junior Drill Team, Equestrian Trail Incorporated and have participated in a Presidential Inaugural Parade, city parades, community events, and Special Olympic events.
California Rangers is best suited to young people who like to ride and like the outdoors, but is not just a riding class. Each member must strive to work up
through the ranks as he or she is learning horsemanship and drill maneuvers. This competitive opportunity within the military structure results in the
development of leadership ability, self respect and both mental and physical discipline. Each member develops respect for officers, respect for personal
discipline and that of the troop, and the personal ability to accept responsibility.
