Ellen Corob Equestrian Center
Ellen Corob has been a part of the Central Coast equestrian community for over 24 years. She is a person that is active as a competitor, but has always found time to give back to the sport by volunteering as a show manager, clinic organizer, and board member. She recently relocated her Ellen Corob Equestrian Center to the WV Ranch in San Luis Obispo. There is a covered arena, outdoor ‘roping’ arena, a lot of turn out paddocks, and fields to ride in. Ellen says “it’s GREAT to be in San Luis Obispo, close to tack and feed stores, and Much Closer to home!”
The facility includes a barn, stalls with attached paddocks, and paddocks with shelters. Boarding as well as training and lessons are available. Ellen’s background in riding began in Western disciplines, but her primary focus on teaching today is Dressage and General Horsemanship. All breeds of horses are welcome in addition to all levels of riders. Full training for horses and riders includes traditional arena and round pen work, and miles of trail riding. Haul-in lessons are welcome and Ellen will travel to teach off the premises when time permits. With her background starting out in Western riding, she showed Western Dressage this past year at local shows and feels that it is a great fit with her regular Dressage training, and an exciting new direction to go.
Ellen’s show string includes a variety of breeds including Warmbloods, Arabians, Mustang, and Quarter Horses. Her top horse at the moment is Deynika. A homebred and trained American Warmblood. Ellen has brought Deynika along as a Dressage horse from birth to knocking at the door of Grand Prix. Ellen and Deynika made their Grand Prix debut last year and are continuing to work on, and refine their training.
Another horse actively competing is HR Maverick, an 8 year old Arabian gelding competing at 3rd Level. Maverick is another horse that Ellen has brought along from the beginning of his training. Maverick is owned by long time client, Mary Poelke of Bakersfield. In 2014 Maverick was 3rd in the USDF Region 7 First Level Freestyle Championships, and 3rd in the CDS 1st Level Freestyle Championships. The goal is to take Maverick all the way to Grand Prix.
Ellen has volunteered her time back to the sport she loves, because she would like a say in the direction the sport is going and the decisions that impact both her and her clients. Ellen is currently Vice President of both the local and state chapter of the California Dressage Society. She has also served as a Region 7 Delegate for the United Sates Dressage Federation.
As a side note Ellen is a certified appraiser with the American Association of Equine Appraisers.
