Owner / Operator & Head Trainer
Ryan Pedigo Farms & Ryan Pedigo Sport Horses
" WITH OVER 27 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE"
Ryan R. Pedigo, a native of Southern California, spent his summers on his family’s farm in Oregon. Through his teenage years, Ryan lived on the family farm for 5 years. During that time, Ryan learned key horsemanship skills that would serve as a strong foundation from which to build himself into a true all-around equestrian professional.
After returning to California from the family farm, Ryan entered into business with top hunter trainer and horseman, Ron Kennedy, of Kennedy Farms. The joint business flourished for 19 years, and eventually became Kennedy-Pedigo Farms. Ron Kennedy was very influential in Ryan’s development as a top-equestrian, and professional horseman. Kennedy-Pedigo Farms demonstrated itself as a top “A” hunter training facility.
In 2013 Ryan branched-out on his own and founded three business endeavour's, branching out to support three different aspects of the industry: Pedigo Farms, Ryan Pedigo Hanoverian & Warmblood Sport Horses and Pedigo Farms Riding School. Ryan relocated his business to a 10-acre farm in beautiful Riverside California - where he has successfully expanded all three business endeavour's. The farm is nestled adjacent to hundreds of acres of orange groves of the California Citrus State Historical Park, allowing the farms surroundings a superior calming country feel, perfect for training, breeding and raising sport horses in this ideal environment - with quick access to the city, freeway and airports for our clients and buyers convenience.
Ryan Pedigo Farms, "Established in 2013 by Ryan R Pedigo" is an exclusive, privately owned, full-service, all-inclusive boutique training barn catering to the A-Circuit hunter-rider and equine athlete; with a host of amenities.

In addition, Ryan Pedigo Farms hosts their annual Pedigo Farms Christmas Party, a lavish event for his clients and friends set amongst many of the horses, in the main barn isle, over a blanket of straw. The main barn is decked-out in wonderful Christmas décor, including red table cloths, in a family cozy atmosphere.
As an owner/operator, Ryan is very hands-on in the daily routines, making all decisions on foaling, breeding, stallion handling, mare care, foaling, weaning, training, vet work and the yearly breed society inspections. Ryan also directs all aspects of the performance horse sales, training of young horses, training clients and showing the horses himself. Ryan always looks forward to meeting the year’s newest foal crop of little Sport Horses and selecting the new breeding season’s stallion/mare combinations. As the Ryan Pedigo Sport Horse breeding legacy evolves, Ryan is now into eight generations of successfully bred Sport Horses.
Ryan also takes immense pride in his involvement with The American Hanoverian Society (AHS) and works actively with several other Sport Horse Breed Registries. In 2017, the AHS bestowed a great tribute to one of Ryan’s foundation stallions, ES Wellesley PF, who sadly passed away in 2019. Ryan has therefore sponsored a perpetual trophy in honour of Wellesley PF, the “The ES Wellesley Memorial Trophy.” This trophy stands in memory of the late foundation stallion ES Wellesley and will be awarded to the year-end AHS Top Earning Hunter Horse. In honour of this perpetual trophy a dear friend of Ryan’s, renowned artist Ms. Beth Munnings-Winter, of ‘Munnings Original Art’, commissioned a wonderful piece of artwork. A portrait of Ryan jumping ES Wellesley PF now proudly hangs in the AHS office in Lexington, Kentucky. At the Annual AHS Awards Banquet, Ryan proudly presents a plaque to the winner of the ‘Top Performing Hunter Horse’, in memory of this truly remarkable and wonderful stallion.
