5.0(2 reviews)


At Golden Ridge we focus on the learning of being the best horsemanship skills one can have. We proud ourselves with taking complete beginners in this sport and taking them all the way to the top of the horse show world. Weather you want to just learn to ride or have an interest in owning and showing your own horse, at Golden Ridge we can make those dreams come true.

Most I personally, Owner Teddi Estes-Boe, enjoys seeing happen at Golden Ridge Stables is when a new clients feel the achievement of their goals they set with us in the beginning. Whether it be, just learning to trot on a horse or taking a show horse in the ring for the first time. Seeing my clients that have been with us for over 15 years manage to finally get qualified and make it to the Worlds Championship Horse Show. We are a family barn that supports one another and that puts a huge smile on my face.

    I have been riding with Golden Ridge for nearly eleven years. The trainer-instructor Teddi Estes is superb at helping riders be comfortable on a horse. She is patient, kind, and extremely knowledgeable about Saddlebreds and about good riding. Her clients range in age from four to nearly seventy, and she instructs them all with ease. Moreover, her horses are happy, healthy, and in superb condition.
    As far as I’m concerned, Golden Ridge is one of the top Saddlebred barns in California, if not the entire West.

    Teddi is a very talented trainer with horses - yet she is also an extremely talented teacher when it comes to children. She taught my two boys to ride over the course of six plus years and I will be forever grateful for her for the patience and endurance that she exhibited with my boys. They went on to show and did a fantastic job and I was so proud of them. They could not have done this without Teddi’s incredible instruction.
