At BellaMar, head trainer and owner Elizabeth Van De Kerckhove believes that quality instruction is instrumental to success in all disciplines. She and her team strive to provide the best education for both horse and rider. Not satisfied with riders that just sit on a horse and go around the arena or a course of jumps, Elizabeth creates horse and rider teams with solid and correct foundations paired with the necessary physical fitness that allows them to excel in their chosen disciplines.
BellaMar has wonderful, sound, safe horses for any level rider to learn and advance their skills. Focus is placed on all aspects of horse care as well as creating a balanced, sensitive rider.
Active on the local show circuit, BellaMar brings students to both schooling and rated hunter/ jumper shows. Several BellaMar Equestrians are also competitive event riders, so we both show and train in Woodside as well as Twin Rivers in Paso Robles.
