Greenridge Farm is a small, full service barn for the hunter jumper sport horse and rider. Each client, human or horse, receives specialized attention from the trainer Pat Sikorra. Pat has over 35 years of expertise in the Hunter/Jumper field. He has had a very successful career winning numerous classes and many championships, and has shown for many years across the country on the Hunter/Jumper Circuit. For the past 28 years he has devoted his time to passing on his knowledge of riding to others. Pat has excellent, positive communication skills with horses and riders and has successfully trained clients at all riding levels. He trains horses from green-broke to the advanced Hunter/Jumper divisions. Pat also lives right on the property.
Pat truly enjoys teaching his students to become better riders. He strives to make each client’s riding experience enjoyable and informative. He is the type of trainer that when he tells you what to do on a horse, he explains why he wants you to do it, and what he expects you to see and feel as a result of what he’s asking. If you want an individualized trainer, this is where you should be. This Florida Hunter/Jumper trainer, Pat Sikorra, has training that includes: starting young Hunter/Jumper horses, Hunters, Jumpers, horse training, group Hunter/Jumper lessons, and Hunt Seat Equitation. Beginners to the most experience riders are welcome! Trailering in for lessons is welcomed, or Pat will travel to other farms to teach and provide clinics. If you do not own a horse and would like to own or lease, we can help you find a suitable horse to fit your needs, leasing or purchasing.
We show at home and away at USEF Sanctioned Shows, Hunter Circuit, PCHA and FOXLEA schooling shows as well as Central Florida and other “A” rated shows, including HITS. Shows include daily coaching and schooling of the horse. If you should want daily horse care at show, including feeding grain and supplements it can be provided for an additional fee. I will also ride your horse in competition if you need that help, also for an additional fee.
If you ever need to purchase a horse, Pat will assist in the purchasing of your next horse or the selling of a current one. Purchasing includes evaluation of potential horse for purchase per individual client need, travel and accompaniment of client to trial, and negotiation of purchase. For the sale of horses, Pat will evaluate potential buyers for sale horse including showing of horse, maintaining horse fitness, matching potential buyers, and negotiation of sale.
