Traditional Riding     Progressive Teaching 

Proven Results


Founded in 2011 in beautiful Portola Valley, we offer a diverse range of riding options to our clients, ranging from a client's first lease,  to pursuing higher goals in the A-circuit show ring.  Our clients are children and adults of all levels who feel that practicing good horsemanship and enjoying time at the barn are just as important as developing their riding skills and competing at the uppermost levels.   


Vintage Lane leads the field in composing customized training and horse care packages for our clients, with a focus on reasonable costs and finding creative solutions for everyone's needs.  We have considerable experience working with older horses and those with soundness issues that require special management,

and have a care team second to none in expertise and great communication.


We cultivate a safe, fun, inclusive and nurturing place for both horses and our riders, with excellent organization and attention to detail.  Our exceptional staff are very carefully chosen and trained, and are responsible, caring and excellent positive role models for our junior students.   From pursuing medal finals and elite jumpers, to attending clinics, participating in schooling shows and enjoying the horses,

Vintage Lane is a unique place to ride in Silicon Valley.
