Tranquillity Farm is a full-service facility, offering boarding, training, lessons, show preparation and coaching at shows, sales preparation, breeding and transportation.
Owners Ricci and Stephanie Desiderio are legends in the show world, having amassed more National titles than any other trainers in history. Their children and their clients enjoy the distinction of being an integral part of this reputation. Famous horses and highly accomplished riders have gotten their start under Ricci & Stephanie's tutelage. Their dedication and expertise has no equal!
No matter how talented the horse or rider is, being successful in competition requires a great trainer, and we have four. From novice level through advanced, the Desiderios know how to build a winning team from the ground up. Confidence is derived from learning correctly, and their students' confidence and knowledge is evident in their successes, both in and out of the show ring.
We also pride ourselves in training your horse for show or pleasure, whether he is an unbroke youngster or a seasoned horse needing a tune up.
