Congrats to Jamey & Clara on their new horses!
Congratulations to Jamey on her recent purchase of the black beauty Oldenburg Eloquence (aka Ella)! She is a new barn favorite with her friendly and loving personality. She is always eager to greet visitors walking the barn aisles. Another big contrats goes to Clara and her lovely Dutch Warmblood mare Carriere Z (aka Carrie)! We are so happy Carrie is staying here at SaddleBack and can not wait to see her and Clara grow as a team! We wish them all the best as they get to know their new companions better!

SaddleBack Spring Horse Show March 31st!

A $50 deposit is required when signing up to reserve your preferred school horse. Total show cost for a full division with school horse is $150 & cost with own horse is $120.

Parent/Rider Questionnaire & Parent/Trainer Conferences
SaddleBack supports our students’ goals by working with each student to help achieve them. For some, riding lessons may be a way to exercise and socialize. For others, it becomes a passion they continue to pursue through horse shows, college, and even a chosen career path. With this in mind, SaddleBack has tried to provide each parent (or adult if adult rider) a Questionnaire to be completed and dropped into the red Payment box in the Tack Room. This short 5-10 minute Questionnaire will help us better understand your goals and better inform you of all SaddleBack and this sport has to offer!

Questionnaires are available via email or texting SaddleBack and printed copies located in the tack room. Please complete the survey ASAP--print off & bring to next lesson, fill out during your child's lesson, or take copy home & bring back, dropping into red Payment box in tack room once completed.  

The Questionnaire offers an opportunity for you to sign up for a free 15-minute one-on-one conference with your trainer to discuss goals, questions, programs, and any SaddleBack news that you or your child may want to know about. Also, you may request information in the Questionnaire without scheduling a conference if you'd like.  We will begin to send out the requested information and schedule requested conferences after the holidays! Thank you for working with SaddleBack to help us better understand our riders goals and help them grow!
