Training Programs

The art of communication between horse and rider.

Our challenging curriculum combined with equine education directly promotes and develops individual excellence as an equestrian, ultimately creating a skilled rider in any arena – hunter, jumper and equitation. With a busy Regional and National Show Calendars, Elvenstar offers a program for any equestrian goal.

The National Program at Elvenstar offers aspiring equestrians the opportunity to achieve accolades and experience at our nation’s top horse shows, from California to New York. We strive to set goals, overcome challenges and develop top-level competitors. From the care, the best vets and farriers to the groundwork and in the arena training, we provide an education that leads to solid horsemen and women, making riding more than just winning. We have trainers that cater to hunter championships, equitation excellence or international show jumping aspirations. Show jumping up and down the California coast is part of the program and when students are ready for a taste of east coast and international competition we will travel to West Palm Beach, Spruce Meadows (Canada), and even across the ocean for a European tour. With contacts and business partners we can offer you the chance to experience equestrian excellence worldwide. Come meet us, view the facility and discuss your riding goals with us, so we can place you in the perfect program.
