Paddington Station Dressage & Eventing

Boarding and Training

Our facility encompasses 75 acres with irrigated pastures and shelters, ideal for retirees and lay-ups. Box stalls and individual covered corrals are also available. Horses taken for training with 24-hour care. We have a dressage arena, covered arena, and beginner level cross-country course.

Novice and intermediate riders concentrate on learning to use their seat and legs correctly. We work on dressage principles, with gymnastic exercises for suppling the rider, and also horse suppling exercises, to build knowledge and confidence. More advanced riders work on collection, lengthening, and some lateral movements, as well as being able to ride a dressage test, from Training to Third level as appropriate to your experience. Riders have the opportunity of riding different horses and learning how to correct and improve the horse's way of going. Lunge lessons are also offered for both beginner and advanced riders so the riders can work strictly on themselves. You can hack on our riding track or try cross-country, perhaps for the first time. We take trips to shows and to school other cross country courses.

Our focus is individual attention and learning correctly and safely in a beautiful environment.

Boarding rates start at $185.00 per month for pasture with shelter. Individual corrals and box stalls are available in the winter and for short term in the summer at additional cost.

We are situated approximately 100 miles north of San Francisco on a beautiful ranch of 75 acres, close to Highway 101. Instruction is offered by British Horse Society qualified staff based on Pony Club principles.
