Meet the Staff at Gold Creek Equestrian
Owners: Patti and Gael Gable
This goal-driven dynamic duo works tirelessly to make Gold Creek the best it can be.
Our diverse selection of trainers provide upper-level instruction for more experienced riders.
Barn Staff: Eric, Karen, and Ramon
Our hard-working, quality-driven barn staff ensure our horses and customers are happy and cared for. In addition, Karen serves as the volunteer coordinator for Gold Creek. She helps keep the barn running by cleaning stalls as well as bathing and grooming horses. You'll find her, Eric, and Ramon at the barn pretty much every day.
Instructors: Brittney, Bryan, Christy, Dora, Elizabeth, Kirann, Kiri, and Sara
Our seasoned instructors provide a comprehensive beginner's riding experience to all students.
Brittney joined the Gold Creek team in 2017 as a volunteer and began instructing in 2018. She is an avid dressage student herself, and loves helping her students develop relationships with their horses as their foundation to riding. She hopes to create a positive learning experience and build confidence for both horse and rider by teaching fairness and respect in all aspects of riding.
Sara grew up riding at event and dressage barns but most of her professional experience has been in teaching and training hunters and jumpers as an assistant trainer in higher level programs. She has her own program Eastside Equestrian, that focuses on the lower levels (beginner and returning riders) in eventing, hunters/jumpers and sales in addition to teaching for the Gold Creek Riding School and Gold Creek Equestrian Preschool. Sara believes in a positive and nurturing approach and is heavily focused on personal growth, holistic horsemanship and goal setting.
