Riding in the open air, surrounded by trees and gorgeous views, in the company of an experienced trainer and other dedicated riders and their horses....Wildtree Farm is perfect for you and your horse.

The Farm

Wildtree is 155 acres of beautiful timber land, nestled within the foothills of the Cascades near Yoncalla, Oregon. The views from the riding arenas are gorgeous and the surroundings are serene. Choose to ride in the covered arena, the large outdoor arena, a round pen, the cross-country course or along the forested trails.

"From those of us who have been blessed enough to train with Norma over the years you will hear stories full of smiling, sweaty, summer camps; shows when our horse was a dream and shows when our horse was a dragon; lessons when (despite her telling us to sit up) we leaned out at a jump and landed on our backside—all of those stories are full of laughter, friendship, learning, and most of all the love of the horse.

It is that love of horses that resonates through all the anecdotes. Norma appreciates each horse as an individual- not for their price tag or breeding. She loves them for their quirky personalities, their faithful hearts, and their mercy as they carry us over obstacles they could just as easily run around.

Norma will make you a better rider, she will help you maximize your horse’s potential and she will do it with an unrivaled passion for horses and the sport. What more could you ask for?"

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of Solitaire. It is a grand passion.
