Welcome to Brighton Ridge Farm LLC!
Rick Brighton specializes in gentle, humane, resistance free natural gaited horsemanship.
Developing a willing relationship between horse and rider is our top
priority. Trail, pleasure riding, or show.
Services include: clinics, training (starting, tune-ups, maintenance, problem horses), lessons, evaluations, workshops, breed certification,
boarding, and consignment services. We support natural sound horses and do not use mechanical or artificial
devices (heavy shoes, chains, chemicals, etc.) to enhance gait. All breeds welcome!
