Welcome to Silver Stables

About Us

Our Mission

Silver Stables is an LLC located in the  Phoenix Area. We cater to beginner-intermediate riders of all ages but our main goal is to introduce horses to all children. We believe that with the help of horses children can grow and learn valuable lessons, such as hardwork and responsibility, that they can rely on throughout life. We target busy families that have children and working adults  who are passionate about horses and wish to learn more about them. Our program is unique in that we do not only teach our students to ride, but how to be all around horseman in a fun, friendly, and safe environment. Our students learn basic handling, grooming, groundwork, riding, and showing skills. We are a team that is passionate about horses and believe that every child can benefit from having a horse in their life.

Riding since the young age of 10 and now 20 I was kid that was bit by that horse bug. I knew at a young age that I wanted to grow up to work with horses. My dreams became a reality when I opened this business 3 years ago. I'm a recent graduate from the SCC Equine Science Program. Currently studying under Natalie Ikel-Baugham of Baugham Ranch and Monica Cornejo of M and M Ranch, I strive to stay on top of my training so that I can offer the best training for my clients. Currently a trainer of the amazing Mangalarga Marchador a gaited breed from Brazil. With only a few 100 here in the U.S. they are rare. With multiple trips to Brazil to study and better understand the gait I've successfully trained many Marchadors here in AZ along with others from out of state. I strive to understand each of my clients needs and adapt a training plan that works best for them whether it's showing for fun or competitively or just learning to be a better rider I am happy to help.

I grew up riding and showing in western pleasure. I got back into riding later in life when my daughter showed interest in horses and jumping. From there everything fell into place. We eventually bought horse property for our 1 horse which then multiplied to 3 and two years later DJ started Silver Stables, a hunter/jumper facility for beginner/intermediate riders. While jumping is fun it is not my passion. I enjoy working with the young horses or projects that need a little extra time. I do enjoy going to the shows and seeing each student grow and occasionally will help out with lessons when I'm needed. I mostly enjoy subbing in to teach obstacles or take them out for a nice trail ride.
