The Training Program

Ridgemark Farm's training program is available to boarders at Bonny Doon Equestrian Park, which is managed by trainer Vicki Rose. You can find complete information about boarding with us here.

We purposely keep the program small to offer individualized attention and high quality, personal instruction to our riders and care for our horses. It is important to us to have a good fit between the trainers, clients and horses. We have a very closely knit group who value excellence, sportsmanship and integrity.

Training packages range from 2-5 days per week of lessons and rides. Lessons are taught Tuesday through Sunday. Vicki and Laura ride the horse on days owners do not lesson.

Vicki and crew travel to approximately one 'A' or 'B' rated horse show per month. Paso Robles Horse Park, Woodside and Sonoma Horse Park are popular shows for our barn. Laura is the stay at home trainer, so no one misses lessons or rides during shows.

Ridgemark Farm operates out of Bonny Doon Equestrian Park, a beautiful 80 acre horse facility in Bonny Doon, just 15 minutes from downtown Santa Cruz.
