"No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle." 

- Winston Churchill

As a family-owned and operated facility, we take pride in offering a unique combination of seasoned and caring riding instructors, premier facilities, and a true commitment to excellence in horsemanship and sportsmanship. Our commitment to exceptional horse care is reflected in our dedication to offering programs suited for all levels. We are proud to participate in the equestrian community and are committed to the well-being and success of both horse and rider.

Located in the heart of Ridgefield, our barn is a unique gem in Southwest Washington. We pride ourselves on being one of the few barns that can accommodate both beginner and advanced riders. With an amazing roster of lesson horses and experienced training staff, we have everything you need to take your riding skills to the next level.

The Owners


We are Jake and McKaylee Childs. We moved to the Pacific Northwest in the spring of 2018, and after having moved all over the country for school and work, we feel so lucky to call Clark County our forever home. We have 4 kids, two boys and two girls, all of whom love to ride and are excited to continue learning!

We are blessed with an incredible staff at Emerson Equestrian. Their dedication, expertise, and compassionate approach to caring for our clients and their horses are what make our barn so special. 


We are a family-owned business with a passion for providing exceptional care, we believe in creating a warm and welcoming environment where our clients feel valued and supported as they pave the way for the next generation of horsemen and horsewomen.
