Sea Ridge Farms is a true horseman’s paradise. Owner and Trainer Patty Vatterott is dedicated to offering horses and riders at her world class facility in the heart of Wellington, Florida horse country the very best in coaching, training, boarding, sales, and equine management. The facility, just a hack away from the Wellington Equestrian Centre Central Park, boasts superior amenities including light, airy box stalls in the show barns, lush turnout paddocks, two expansive arenas with state-of-the-art footing, and top-notch trainers and care.
The riders of Sea Ridge Farms range from novice to world champions, from Youth to Select competitors–and their exhibitors travel to shows throughout the United States with a heavy emphasis in All-Around competition. In her quest to offer the very best to her clients, Vatterott turned to Robert Gonzales–one of the most respected and successful professional grooms in the country–to manage the farm.
Vatterott has high praise for her farm manager, stating that, “Robert is the epitome of a true horseman. He has an uncanny ability to connect with horses and riders of any age. His work ethic is unparalleled. Our farm runs at a high level because of Robert and his hand-picked staff of grooms. His ability to work with his staff, the trainers, and the clients is a challenge that he accomplishes with much success. A huge reason that Sea Ridge Farms stays at the top of its game is because of Robert’s management skills and care for the horses.”
Farm Manager Robert Gonzales is the center hub of the incredibly busy wheel at Sea Ridge Farms. He brings a lifetime of knowledge to the job, a stellar resumé, and a pure, unadulterated love for the horses in his care. His incredibly strong work ethic and pride in doing his job well stems from his early years on his father’s and grandfather’s ranches in Mexico. He recalls, “I have loved horses ever since I can remember. I started riding at the age of five with my father’s and grandfather’s horses. I just loved them from the very first.” His family moved to California in 1990 where Gonzales attended school and graduated high school, and he always managed to keep horses in his life.
