A barn is a sanctuary in an unsettled world, a sheltered place where life’s true priorities are clear. When you step back, it’s not just about horses — it’s about love, life, and learning.

Get to know our horses!


Bainbridge Island Riding School currently owns five schooling horses that have each taught hundreds of children the basics of horseback riding. Gentle, forgiving, and well-trained, our horses are known for having a beginner-safe disposition and a kind eye. Our schooling horse roster includes four palomino quarter horses and one pony - all of which enjoy a balanced life of green pasture, seasonal trail walks, and one day off a week. A balanced and happy horse is safe horse and we love taking care of them.
