Lawrence Family

HorseTraining Facility & Vacation Rental

Gerry & Margot Lawrence reside in Los Altos, CA and spend many days/nights on the ranch.  Their youngest daughter, Vanessa, lives 10 minutes away from the ranch and is the ranch manager.  Vanessa has been showing and breeding cowhorses for 15 years.  This ranch is our newest family venture and we hope you enjoy your stay in beautiful Paso Robles! 

Heather Schilling: Heather has been teaching able bodied and adaptive riding lessons for 15 years and is both PATH and EAGALA certified. She has ridden both English & Western for over 35 years and enjoys working with children and adults to teach not only basic riding and handling of horses, but the depths of connection between equines and humans. We will have a few schooling horses for lessons in the near future so no need to own one to learn from her.

Ryan Smit: Ryan has spent most of his life in South Dakota starting colts and roping, and has grown very fond of cowhorse & versatility events in his later years. He has given many clinics over the years and is readily available for lessons and training on our ranch.

Paso Robles Pastures is excited to announce our 2020 trainer lineup! 

Oscar Aguayo:Been on the ranch for 18+ years and is well known in our area for putting exceptional foundations on colts and older green horses.  Oscar is one of a kind and resides on our ranch with his girlfriend, 2 daughters, dog and 2 cats.  Contact us for training rates
