Briarwood Riding School

Welcome to Briarwood!

Briarwood Riding School is the home of accomplished Three Day Event rider, Sarah VandenBerg. Sarah, along with her sister Jill, originally started Briarwood almost 20 years ago and have been creating successful horse and rider combinations ever since. Believing that riding should be both fun and rewarding, our mission remains to provide top quality instruction, training, and coaching specifically tailored to the needs of you and your horse.

Briarwood is centrally located in Poway at the beautiful Peppertree Farms -- one of San Diego's premiere equestrian centers. Immediately adjacent to Poway, Scripps Ranch, and Rancho Bernardo, Briarwood is also just 25 minutes away from from Downtown San Diego. We offer a full horsemanship program for beginning through advanced riders from age 10 through adult. Sarah's experience as an Advanced Level Competitor, USPC "A" Graduate, and United States Eventing Association Level III Certified Instructor combine to create a safe, proven environment to meet your goals. Lessons, training, competitive programs, as well as a team of show quality school horses are here, ready for you to enjoy.
