Ridgemark Farm continues to operate out of North County's Bonny Doon Equestrian Park, located just 15 minutes north of Santa Cruz. Lessons are available for all levels of children and adults, summer camps for kids, and full care board and training.
Vicki Rose has also opened a Ridgemark Farm South location to better serve South County residents at Castlewoodo Ranch in Larkin Valley! Castlewood Ranch is a 30 acre boarding facility. It has a 60' round pen, a small arena, a cross country jumping course, and miles of maintained trails. Hot water wash rack, turnouts, full and partial care boarding available.
On the ranch are goats, alpacas, chickens, Kid Rock the mini pony, and Ella Mae-a pig the kids can walk on a leash! It is a safe and friendly environment where kids can learn how to take care of the animals and be good stewards of the land.
The ranch will be home to Ridgemark's new endeavor, Horses Heal Hearts, a multifaceted program where the horses are our teachers. Come for Cowpoke Club, Cowpoke Campouts and Camp, Horse(wo)manship, EAGALA Equine Assisted Therapy, and Grief Support Groups in Collaboration with Hospice of SC County and Jacob's Heart.
