Friendships, Family, Fun

Celebration Farm takes pride in encouraging riders to be their very best in the show ring, but also as they follow their dreams in  life. Horses are magnificent animals that have much to teach us far beyond what we accomplish in the saddle.

Sergio Novoa

Sergio has been with Celebration Farm for 7 years and is absolutely instrumental to our program.

He, along with Serafin and Amador, are always there to make sure we remain a well oiled machine whether at home or away!
