The Trainers

Meet Tom & Clare Mansmann

We are are life-long and generational horsemen, with experience through the CCI 4* level of Eventing, as well as Show Hunters, Jumpers, Dressage, Fox Hunting, and even a little ranch work.

Pacific Farms holds a strong educational background, with Tom and Clare having worked for and/or trained with top riders such as Jimmy Wofford, Wash Bishop, Mike Huber, Don Sachey, Will Simpson, Jessica Ransehousen, and David and Karen O’Connor, and continue to expand that education on a daily basis. They also both have extensive experience with Thoroughbreds, both on and off the track, and love helping owners transition horses from the track and into successful riding partners.

Lessons & Training

Tailored to you and your horse to provide the most positive experience. We believe in training horses from the ground up, and training occurs throughout the day, based on the horse’s needs. School horses can be available to practice your riding while horses are in training. Group and private training options are available, both in and out of the arena, flat and/or jumping.

Position Matters Workshop Series

A unique workshop experience for all ages and levels. We've partnered with Amanda Cousins from ACE Equestrian and together we break down the basics of our position and why it matters to our communication with the horse. Fun and engaging, we cover three parts: unmounted, lunge lesson, and small group.

Lease & Share Program

A unique opportunity to ride select high quality and privately owned horses. Enjoy the benefits of those in training board, with reduced hourly lesson rates, regular group rides, as well as the ability to enjoy the horse off-property for fun outings such as fox hunting or competitions.

Rehabilitation

We have extensive rehab experience and work closely with vets and farriers to offer the most comprehensive program for your horse. Care from the most acute and early stages, through the legging up process of ponying, walking, hacking, all the way to the competition ring. All provided with a personal touch. Training isn't left behind, keeping the horses stimulated mentally, when physically they need to remain under restriction. PEMF services also available.
