Rose Ridge Performance Horses are based at Rose Ridge
Farm, family owned and operated by Heidi Bergmann-Schoch
and her husband John Schoch, in Central New Jersey.
Training for your horse in Hunt Seat, Western and Dressage
is available on site, though arrangements can be made for us
to go to your barn. While our focus is on Quarter Horses, we
do accept most other breeds into our programs. With our
indoor and outdoor rings, training can continue all year for
those who are interested. We travel to the New Jersey
Quarter Horse Shows and a few other shows, depending on
our clients desires.
