Alicia Swinton grew up in the beautiful Sonoma County, and began riding at the age of 6. She grew up riding at the European Pony School at Oakridge Stables, owned and operated by 3 Day Eventing hall of fame rider, Yves Sauvginon. She started as a working student and began teaching at Oakridge Stables when she was 17.  While Alicia has trained in many styles like liberty work, reining, natural horsemanship, and hunters, her passion and specialty lies in 3 Day, classical Dressage, and Jumpers. Alicia has trained with some of the sports top professionals, such as, Boyd Martin, Yves Sauvginon, Lauren Billys, Bunnie Sexton and many more.

“My passion lies in helping people reach their goals with their horses, with a progressive, fun and educational environment.  I absolutely love building a solid foundation for horse and rider to succeed and progress through the levels.  Throughout the past years I have helped numerous students achieve success and fulfill their dreams in and out of the show ring. We nurture and instill these core concepts in all our riders; hard work, dedication, and compassion, As a result, we have an amazing group of supportive riders and friends that encourage each other on and have a lot of fun in the process! We actively attend local dressage and hunter/jumper shows, northern CA 3 day events, and cross country schoolings, as well as clinics by top professionals in the sport such as: George Morris, Phillip Dutton and Hawley Bennet.  We are committed to progression for all levels, and you and your horse will get experience and preparation for upcoming shows!”


Team ASE is based on the belief that my clients needs and goals are of the utmost importance along side of what’s BEST for the horse.
