Erik Caddeo is a young and upcoming trainer that I feel has the work ethic and passion it takes to make a name for himself. Erik moved to the US a year ago from Italy to chase his dreams. We are very proud to have Erik as part of the team and helping him mold his show career.
Erik is married to his wife Alexia who is an equine reproduction veterinary.

Arek and his family live north of us in Temecula, CA and have been shoeing for us since 2004. Arek is the type of farrier that really understands horses, how the horses’ confirmation affects their particular job. He is quick to see and adapt a shoe to the way a horse moves and develop a better result based on what our concerns and needs are. We work very closely, and together are always discussing and tweaking the way the horses are shoed to fit the way that they need to perform.
We really value the fact that Arek is very open minded to my opinion and willing to try out different things. In addition to working on our horses at the ranch, Arek also travels to most of our bigger shows with us.
Arek and his wife Kelly have two sons, Tanner and Tucker.
Randy trims all our mares and foals, yearlings and shoes 2 yr olds till they are ready for Arek. He has worked along side Arek for many years and knows his program very well.
Additionally, Randy has his own shoeing business and clientele. He flies into Arizona weekly to assist Arek and he is also responsible for shoeing all of our 2 year olds, yearlings and weanlings.
Randy and his wife Shelly have a daughter, Lilly and a son, Levi.
