PCHS is the only school in American that affords you the opportunity to develop your skills after hours. Formal instruction is from 8AM to 5PM Monday through Thursday, 8AM to 4PM Friday, but the school is open from 7AM to PM seven days a week to allow you to excel.
Pacific Coast Horseshoeing School is centrally located in Northern California, in Plymouth in Amador County.
The school's convenient location provides students with a diverse range of leisure time activities.
PCHS is 75 miles from beautiful Lake Tahoe and the rugged Sierra Mountains.
The shows and excitement of Reno, Nevada are 90 miles east of the school. The city of Sacramento is a short 30-minute drive. As the capitol of California, Sacramento is full of first class restuarants, cultural and other activiites which many students visit while staying at the school. Downtown Plymouth is 4 miles from the school. Here you can find a grocery store, gas stations, major banks, restaurants and wineries (nearby). Within 20 minutes from the school there are movie theaters, fast food restaurants, major banks, Wal-Mart, Target and any other convince you may need. Pacific Coast Horseshoeing School is located 45 minutes from the Sacramento Airport and provides convenient access to students from around the world. If you use this airport for your arrival, the school will arrange transportation from the airport to the school.
There is a fully equipped kitchen with a microwave and electric skillets as well as sufficient refrigerator and shelf space to accommodate students ability to purchase and store food for meal preparation. There is a communal TV with several sofas as well as seating areas for dining and studying. Coin laundry is available on site.
Dorms provide students segregated sleeping areas for men and women. There is typically a mix of students who stay at the school for the 8 week course and those who live close enough to go home daily or for weekends. Typically each student has his or her own private sleeping area but during classes with a very high dorm population you may have to share with one other person of the same gender.
Many students have no access to transportation during their stay. Typically these students arrange ride shares with those students who do have access to transportation to travel into town for grocery shopping, dining out and/or other activities (don’t forget that it’s good manners to share the cost of fuel!).
Many students thrive on the dorm community and opportunity to form study groups and motivate others to practice their skills after hours. And many close friendships are formed over academics, weekend excursions and a shared experience.
