What’s Going On?
Our Location & Boarding
We are so excited and so proud to have the location we have taught out of for so long.
With that, we now offer full boarding at Ridge Runner Ranch. I take pride in offering quality care, and a quiet, nurturing learning environment for all.
We have our attached indoor to ride all winter long! Champions are made in the winter and in NYS we have plenty of winter.
We also are the perfect facility for the trail rider. Our facility is gorgeous with 85 acres of trails. You will never be bored, or out of trails at this facility!
I strongly believe in education; all of us always have something to learn. We are a western barn however, we support all disciplines. If you have your own personal trainer, or would like to learn something our instructors can’t offer BRING YOUR OWN INSTRUCTOR IN! And take advantage of our indoor to help you get to your dreams without the need to take the winter off.
We offer both stalls/indoor board, and outdoor board.

Private Trail Rides
Beautiful private trail ride and riding time! With a maximum of 2 people taken out at a time, this is really a cool experience to tour our property and to really enjoy the mountains and outside nature on horseback.
Must be booked in advance. A deposit is taken, however is refundable as these are weather permitting and we do live in NYS.
Come check out our trail rides!
Not sure if your little one is ready for full lessons? Or your child loves horses but is just not ready yet for full lessons?
We ALWAYS offer pony rides. They are offered each day. $20 a piece for 10 minutes. This is a GREAT way to introduce your child to horses and get in some riding time.
There is no age restriction the child just must be able to keep a helmet on during the entire session for their safety and as NYS law regulates.
We are working hard to come up with a COVID-safe, camp program for this summer.

Innovative & ground up instruction for all ages
We offer instruction for the child that wants to pursue barrel racing and show. But also for the casual beginner, or trail ride rider that wants to just come out and have fun.
If you’re going to truly excel and be successful in the great world of horses; the key is knowledge and a correct foundation && you’ve come to the right place!
My name is Brittany Mercier and I work with children and adults of all ages and experience levels to help them accomplish their goals and overall learn the proper care and riding basics of horses that will enable them to excel in whichever discipline or sport they choose in the future.
I believe in ground up instruction that inspires children, keeps their attention and teaches them a multitude of life skills such as: dedication, responsibility, task management, confidence and the ability to take charge and complete tasks.
This, more than anything, is a direct reflection of my success as a Horse Riding Instructor.
Based in the Hudson Valley, I am a New Paltz local, born and raised that has been training and riding my entire life; and have been taking lessons myself since 13 years old. I have grown up in an equestrian family with both parents and a sibling that also rides.
I am extremely passionate about building the agricultural and equine community of ulster county while simultaneously teaching the proper techniques.
But I’m also extremely passionate about the game and ready to help my clients improve theirs. I’ve been told I’m tough but understanding, and I give each rider the individual guidance they need to exceed their potential.
