Rancho De Los Amigos is home to several trainers and their students. We currently have three training instructors and a hunter/jumper trainer. Each works cooperatively with the others and the boarders so everyone is able to enjoy the facility and their horses.
Please feel free to contact our horse trainers directly about their programs. They each offer a unique program to help clients achieve their riding goals.

Susie has been riding for 42 years and teaching for 26 years. Her students have competed in all levels of dressage, eventing and jumping.
Susie began her career in Colorado showing jumpers, then changed to eventing and dressage. Susie achieved Preliminary Champion in Eventing, and First and Second Level Champion in Dressage. She competed nationally through Open Intermediate Level Eventing and earned her Bronze and Silver medals and competed nationally through Prix St. Georges in Dressage.
“I have been riding with Susie for five years, starting out as a 60 year old who hadn’t sat on a horse in 50 years. Susies teaches with an overarching goal in mind, but remains flexible in her day-to-day lessons. You have 100% of her attention 100% of the time. I never leave a lesson without feeling like my horse and I have achieved balance and harmony — he looks beautiful and I feel empowered and exhilarated. My lessons with Susie are the best hours of my day.”
–Marti Van Cleef
“My goal is to guide the rider and horse to understand the movements technically and to achieve them through collaboration and cooperation. I want our horses to understand what their job is and to enjoy doing it with their human partners.”
–Susie Braun
