The trainer at Willow Creek, Ryan Oropeza, has 27 years of riding and coaching. He has been successful at different levels of hunter, jumper, and dressage competitions. He qualified young horses for dressage competitions of national scope. Ryan has coached students with great success in everything from ponies, short stirrup, adult and junior equitation to junior hunters and jumpers. He has been coaching the UC Davis Equestrian Team for nearly 6 years with much success. The intercollegiate riders under Ryan`s coaching have made it to the regional, zones, and national finals every year to date. His latest endeavor is obtaining a horse show steward license. A horse show steward sometimes also called a rules steward or licensed steward, is a licensed official at a horse show tasked with the responsibility of interpreting and enforcing the rules of the organization that sanctions the horse show. In many organizations, stewards also must submit reports following the show explaining any major rules violations or other information that may be required. The show steward is an individual required to be of the highest ethical standard.
