Summer Break at the Lake

By Misty Hall

Choose your own path with Los Padres Outfitters

By Zachary Rosen

Nothing symbolizes California more than the iconic image of the Western cowboy. While those days may have passed, Graham Goodfield has actually lived it, spending his entire life around horses and ranchers. A third generation Carpinteria resident, his grandmother was a “horse woman” who began teaching Graham how to ride when he was around 3 years old. Graham grew up working at several of the local ranches, and was later mentored by longtime rancher Tony Alvis. Tony taught Graham all about cattle wrangling and riding in the Los Padres National Forest and other trails.
