Thank you for

your interest in Ridge Brook Farms

Ridge Brook Farms is owned and operated by Niki Smith.  Focusing on hunters and equitation, personalized training programs for the horse and rider and treating the show horse as a horse philosophy.

Originally from Saratoga, Niki grew up riding and showing her pony, “Lit’l Orphan Annie” in the Capital District. In 2001, she attended Cazenovia College and received a four year Bachelor degree in Equine Business Management. Upon graduation, she worked for six years with top professionals managing and riding on the show circuit; spending winters in Wellington and summer/fall traveling the Northeast circuit. These years gave her the hands on experience producing top horses and riders.

In 2010, Niki moved back to the Saratoga area to start Ridge Brook Farms. After leasing in Saratoga for three years, Ridge Brook Farms is home in Argyle. The farm is located 25 minutes northeast of Saratoga and 25 minutes southeast of Glens Falls. Argyle offers a peaceful country environment for horses within a short drive from major towns.  Ridge Brook has a small personal feel with room for six resident horses.

Ridge Brook competes at a mix of local and ‘A’ rated shows that’s suited to client’s goals for the year.   Training/lessons at private farms available within an hour drive and ship in riders/horses are welcome.   Please like us on Facebook to follow farm news and show results.
