Our Philosophy

As a riding school, our focus is on creating a confident horse person while providing a fun and safe environment. Our goal is to develop students that understand good horsemanship and can effectively communicate with their equine partner in the saddle and on the ground.

As a boarding facility, we value providing quality care of our clients’ horses. We strive to consistently provide a facility that nurtures a healthy and functional environment for our horses and clients.

I’ve been part of many different barns but Redgate Riding is the ultimate and checks every box! Incredible instructor, 5 star care of the horses, fantastic atmosphere!


I’ve worked at a few barns. I can say, Redgate is the Best place for us.
We truly enjoy the community there where all are important. Redgate is a fun place to learn Horsemanship.
We love that the horses are not kept in stalls…instead they are allowed to be in a social group when not being ridden. If one needs stall rest to heal…then stalls are available.


Red Gate is a happy place! Everyone involved truly wants to help you become a better rider and horse person. Instructors are very knowledgeable and work hard to continue their own education as well as educating students. I couldn’t ask for a better place to learn and keep my horse.
