Felipe Ruiz has been working with horses since he was a child in Mexico. He has been training horses and riding the trails in the Little Tujunga Canyon, Hansen Dam, Shadow Hills, and Lake View Terrace areas for over 20 years. Felipe has often been referred to as a “Horse Whisperer” because of his kind and gentle way with horses. He uses understanding of the horse’s personality, thought process, nature, and method of communicating to bring the horse into a position of security and confidence. These elements are especially important when trail riding.
Felipe is a member of the Foothill Mounted Patrol, a volunteer equestrian watch group dedicated to the safety, education and assistance to the community of the Hansen Dam Recreation Area.
Felipe offers full-service training, lessons, sales, and some kick-ass trail riding!
