The Ridge Farm was founded in 1974 as a training, boarding, and sales facility in Tewksbury, New Jersey. Conceptualized by US Olympian Nona Garson and George D’Ambrosio, the operation was divided into The Ridge at Wellington, The Ridge at Riverview, and The Ridge at Tewksbury to cater to seasonal clients and better manage its growing show series. In addition to world-class show experiences, The Ridge also offers personalized training and sales services for clients, whether they are short-stirrup riders just starting out or someone with aspirations for international Grand Prix. Over the years The Ridge has trained numerous Pony Finals Champions, Young Rider Gold Medalists, and winning Grand Prix riders, as well as state and national champions in hunters, jumpers, and equitation divisions. Horses selected and trained by Nona and her team have been winners at top national shows such as Devon, Washington, The National, and the Winter Equestrian Festival.
Nona has represented the United States at every major championship in the sport. She has ridden for the US in over 20 Nations Cup competitions in 15 countries, and won her place on every USEF Championship team through the objective selection process of the time, beating out hundreds of riders vying for a spot on these coveted teams. The Ridge, under Nona’s guidance, has selected and/or trained multiple horses that have gone on to compete at the Olympic Games and World Cup Finals.
Channeling this international experience into an effective training and coaching system, as well as a series of shows catering to a variety of riders from leadline through the Grand Prix, The Ridge, comprised of Nona and a staff of professional equestrians, accepts a limited number of new clients each year into its program. With the knowledge and experience to train horses and riders for every phase of competition and the equestrian industry, The Ridge’s long history of wins and successes is a testament to its vision and dedication to bringing out the best in horse and rider.
