Savannah Feigner has had a lifelong passion for horses and competitive riding. As a young rider Savannah was in numerous training programs that had her showing in the USEF A show circuit in the Pacific Northwest, WEF in South Florida, and HITS in Southern California, as well as many other show circuits on both the East and West Coast. The training she received in these top level programs gave her opportunities to catch ride during her junior years, and she became especially successful in getting the best out of young, green and problematic horses. Savannah began her professional career at the young age of eighteen at a reputable hunter-jumper program in Southern California. She continued to add to her showing resume on both the A and the county circuits all throughout southern California. Over the next several years Savannah had opportunities to work and show for several other high level hunter jumper trainers in San Diego. During these years as an assistant trainer, she not only continued to develop her own riding skills and knowledge base, but became highly effective at helping other riders develop their skills and reach their goals. Savannah is now excited to offer her own full service training program at Rancho Cielo Equestrian facility with a mission to maximize skill and confidence in both horse and rider.
