Meet the Team

Westridge prides itself on its terrific staff.

Every person that comes into contact with you and your horse has been carefully trained.

This means you can be confident that everyone from stall cleaners, to grooms, to managers,

and to trainers are watching over your horse with a careful and discerning eye.

Employees understand that what they do is not just a job, it’s about ensuring the

health, safety and happiness of every horse and client in the barn.


Jenna Ball and Grandma live on site, and Mark and Val reside within 5 minutes of the farm.

When/if a horse needs a little extra care, they are right there to manage your horse’s needs,

no matter what time of the day or night.
