Rawhyde

I agree Rawhyde seems pricey, but here's what you get:

- 3 nights, 2 days room and board
- a staff of about 5-6 expert riding instructors (wait till you see what they can do on a big old GSA)
- food is prepared by a gourmet chef
- open bar (as in free beer)
- all day training (and evening access to the over 100 acres), and the instructors are there with you if you want to ride or practice in the evening
- bike rental or help with setting up your bike appropriately for dirt
- small groups of riders, varies, but I'd say 2-3 instructors per 8-10 rider group
- just a really nice, friendly, helpful environment

I'm not trying to be a marketing guy for Rawhyde, and I'm sure the other programs and instructors mentioned in this thread are great also, but its the one I went to and I'm a believer after going there. Just MHO.

Castaic is less than 2 hours from Tehachapi(sp?) and probably about 2 hours from Fresno.

Hope that helps, maybe some other Rawhyde attendees can think of other things.
