Cedarhill today encompasses 40 acres of fields, streams, rings, barns, and paddocks. Home to over 40 horses including boarders, school horses, and horses in training, there is always something going on!
Over 50 students ride weekly year round in our program as well as our boarders. During the summer we have a big camp program with over 60 attendees.
Three trailers transport our horses from one day local horse shows all the way to the Washington International, Devon, National Horse Show, and other fine AA shows.
Four locally sanctioned horse shows are hosted by Cedarhill Farm each year- a great opportunity to show without having to travel.
Our staff is great. Ricardo and Consuelo with their family have been with us for over 12 years. They live on site in our barn apartment and help with the management of daily operations. Helping them is Luis and Candido. As well as maintaining the feeding, turning in and out, and stall cleaning, they also do most of the individual horse care.
Our riding instructors and teaching assistants are well qualified. Caroline Foto recently earned her USHJA Trainer Certification, I am applying next year, with Taylor Yeaton looking into it. All together we have brought along many from a hesitant timid student to a confident, well educated rider , competing at the national level. Our assistants teach our riders the proper methods of grooming and preparing their mount for their lesson, as well as properly cooling out and returning their mount. They keep our lessons running smoothly.
Two to four foals are born every year at our farm out of our retired top show mares, keeping us busy with youngsters.
Caroline Foto keep our horses sharp at home in a great training program, riding many of Cedarhill owned and our client’s horses at both the local and A horse shows. With her help, as well as the help of our friend and fellow trainer Daniel Geitner our horses get the best ride possible. Prepping the horses make my job easy when I am coaching our riders at the A shows. Our system has created many champions at all the top shows.
