We strive to positively affect everyone who walks through our barn doors from the first time rider to the competitor - all are welcome at GGEC. Our passion for horses is shown in everything we do from providing a safe and caring environment for horses to learning how to ride a horse through ethical horsemanship and training modalities to creating great memories for our customers.

Join us at

Summer Camp

Children of all ages are welcome for the opportunity to attend one of GGEC weekly horse camps. Together we will learn about horses and have an experience they will always remember. Campers will strive to master all aspects of horse care, from feeding to grooming, as well as spending hours in the saddle. Campers will learn to navigate horses both in the arena and out on our 60 acres of trails. In addition to riding, campers will also create equine related keep sakes and take home their own customized GGEC tie-dyed t-shirt. Be Sure to check out our new 3 - Day Camps coming in 2019! $375 per camper, reserve your spot today

Since Preston has begun training at Golden Gate Equestrian Center we have noticed several positive changes. Preston has become much more self-confident. Lauren and Jeff consistently give Preston positive reinforcement, and encourage Preston to try new, more challenging tasks. Preston is better able to understand and handle critiques. At only 9 years old,Preston can now understand the difference between a critique and criticism. He is able to take in critiques of his riding and make the changes needed to be a better rider. Preston has always had a compassionate heart for all animals. Training at Golden Gate has given Preston not only the ability to work closely with horses, but also, the ability to learn respect for each horse as an individual. I know Preston will take his experiences with GGEC beyond his training.
