Hunter, jumper & equitation training

About Westhaven

I'm glad you're here.

I started Westhaven Farm to provide a training experience that’s kind, honest, and inclusive. We train riders who want to refine their skills and enjoy their time at the barn, too. From low stirrups to medal competitions to the grand prix ring, we’re focused on your connection to your horse—and on ways to help you feel great about what you’re doing. 


We’re in residence at Flying J Ranch on the border of Pleasanton and Danville in San Francisco's East Bay. We welcome new horses, so if you want to learn more, I hope you will call.
