Angela Ridgway Dressage

Angela Ridgway is an Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) level dressage trainer, a United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medalist, and a USDF Certified Instructor. She has been creating independent, thinking riders since 1990 and believes in a quiet, subtle approach to training.

Angela focuses on bio-mechanics of both horse and rider to create "balance in movement". Emphasis is placed on helping riders achieve a functional, effective, and elegant position.

She is teaching and training out of Arriba Vista Ranch, set on 220 acres in the rolling foothills of beautiful Sunol, California on Highway 680 between Pleasanton and Fremont.

Mentors include: Rachel Saavedra, Jane Weatherwax, Heather Blitz, and Steffen Peters.
