Bennett Farms is proud to have Sharon Grosshans, senior saddleseat equitation instructor, on our staff to teach SWSL riders to successfully compete in these USEF licensed "youth" horse show competitions. Sharon has more than 20 years experience as an equitation instructor in the San Gabriel Valley and through her combined efforts with USEF, has implemented this program for the children of the greater Los Angeles area. Sharon's success has been demonstrated by the fact that each of her students earned first place ribbons in every class that they entered.


"Bennett Farms is a quality barn with excellent horses in a premier location." says Grosshans. "You are always warmly welcomed here. I really enjoy working with such a professional team developing exceptional riders.
