Without these wonderful facilities hosting our shows, we would not have any shows. Some barns are new to the ADA family and some have been with us for years. Here are the show hosting facilities for the 2018 Show Season.
Located at 1900 Pettis Ave NE, Ada Mi 49301, Thomet Stables is a family owned and operated boarding and training facility open to all breeds of horses and all disciplines of riding. Modern facilities and compassionate care are our main objectives. We cater to our boarders by offering them personal care, convenient location, affordable pricing and one of the largest facilities in the Grand Rapids area.
Rivendell Stables specializes in providing top-notch, full service care for our boarders. With amenities like a heated grooming area, hot/cold water in wash bays, full-size lockers for storage, and blanketing done by staff, we strive to make life more enjoyable for people and horses alike. Indoor/outdoor arenas and daily turnout ensure your horse’s happiness.
Lessons available for beginner to advanced instruction in both hunter/jumpers and dressage. Instructors strive to provide an experience that focuses on both riding and horsemanship skills in an age-appropriate manner. Our younger students are guided in becoming more responsible, attentive and dedicated individuals.
Concord Ridge is located on over 100 beautiful acres neighbored by some of Michigans finest vineyards. Surrounding the barn are numerous paddocks and pastures which are .25 to over 3 acres in size, extensive manicured trails, and 2 large outdoor arenas with a specially engineered drainage system. Our indoor arena features GGT Footing; material mixed with textiles and fibers which creates a more stable riding environment by reducing impact on limbs, providing greater traction and allowing sand depth to remain at a minimum.
Benchmark Dressage is located on 23 picturesque acres just outside of Hudsonville/Grand Rapids MI – just one mile from the 196/M6 interchange. While we are very close to everything, we are surprisingly secluded in a private, park-like setting.
Riders and horses alike enjoy the quiet, peaceful surroundings, full-service care and full range of amenities, including an Olympic sized indoor arena with mirrors and a well-maintained quarter mile “hack-track” that encircles the large sand outdoor arena. Our two, full time professional trainers are here to guide you through your equestrian education and are committed to continually improving their own skills and expertise to provide you with the best tools for developing a successful relationship with your horse.
Horses of all breeds and sports are welcome and encouraged to participate in the pursuit of kind and correct horsemanship. While showing is not at all mandatory, Benchmark Dressage offers both local and nationally rated showing opportunities as well as clinics with some of the top professionals in the state and country.

all with a wonderful family friendly environment.
