Welcome to Ralea Casperson’s stable at Gulf Shore Equestrian Center.
My lifelong dream was to create my own training facility where I can work with riders and their horses in a calm, clean, safe, yet fun environment. Now, here in beautiful South West Florida, I can offer clients a relaxed, yet professional atmosphere where I train daily, as I strive to develop myself and my horses to the highest performance levels in Dressage. This is consistent with my goals to help elevate awareness in Classical Dressage, and perhaps one day, be selected to ride for the US Olympic team.
Here in Bonita Springs, I am blessed with opportunities to train with nationally and internationally accomplished trainers in efforts to advance my skills, and in turn, impart them onto my own clients and students.
In order to advance my goals, I take every opportunity to spend time on the east coast near West Palm Beach in Wellington, Florida’s “Winter Equestrian Capital of the World”. Participating in training clinics and competing at venues like the Adequan Global Dressage Festival Show Grounds and the Jim Brandon Arena gives me the perspective, focus, desire and energy to achieve more. Viewing and riding with some of the World’s finest equestrian trainers and competitors is always a learning experience, and extremely inspiring.
I would love to share my dream with anyone who wishes to experience an equine facility dedicated to providing training in the classical style of Dressage. Two years of hard work has seen us renovate the barns, build new arenas, demolish old fencing and expand pastures on my 22 acre farm. Safe, new ElecroBraid containment gives the impression of natural freedom for the herd, allowing the horses to calmly graze as they view their companions nearby.
We are conveniently located just off Interstate I-75, with easy access to all the amenities provided by the community of Bonita Springs, including the Gulf Coast beaches. Also, we are just minutes from the Ft. Meyers International Airport.
Although, we have much to do yet, in order to complete the development of my training center, I promise you a dedicated, and well managed facility. In order to focus on the art, science and skills of Dressage, I will strive to meet he expectations of like-minded equestrians seeking to experience something unique and special. I will strive to create a family-like atmosphere where clients & students work and play in harmony, while having the horse’s welfare foremost in mind.
