Wendy Rhea, owner/instructor
Wendy has owned
and operated top-quality boarding facilities for since 1990.
Former owner of Baywood Equestrian Center in Castro Valley, she
relocated from the Bay Area in 1996 to build and open Quail Ridge Farm
in Wilton, California. Moving from the hectic life as owner of
Baywood, a 36 stall show barn, she now appreciates the quiet life of a
smaller more personalized country facility.
Wendy has always
prided herself on offering the best care available for the equine
residents at her facilities and she now can offer more personalized care
in the smaller setting. With the attitude that she treats every
horse as if it were her own, horse owners can be assured of the
attention to detail that they would provide themselves on a daily basis.
As many of the Quail Ridge Farm residents are retired, this attention
gives owners peace of mind in knowing their senior equine companions are
getting the same kind of care as they provided themselves when their
horse was in the peak of their performance career.
Wendy also offers instruction
for the dressage rider (see more under “Lessons”). She constantly
strives to expand and enhance her teaching and riding skills through
participation in clinics and most recently as a Participating Instructor
in the USDF Instructors Certification Program.
