Welcome to Celebration Farm

About Us

Learn to Ride


Whether you're just starting out, or  looking to take your riding to the next level, we are here to help you reach your riding goals! Celebration Farm offers private riding lessons on your own horse, or come start out on one of ours!

Come Horse Show With Us


We are proud to offer horse shows for whatever levels our riders are looking to compete at! From the local NIHJA shows to the highest national competitions, there is nothing more rewarding than helping riders reach their highest potentials!

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. Whether it's the way horses are presented at the show ring, the "behind the scenes" care they receive at home, rehabbing an injury, or helping riders interact with their horses, Sergio's attention to detail is unsurpassed. He, along with Serafin and Amador, are always there to make sure we remain a well oiled machine whether at home or away!
