Rosy Dahlstrom

I grew up in the Santa Cruz area and started riding at the age of 5. As a junior rider I competed in dressage and hunter jumpers participating in many junior and year end championships. At a young age I began to enjoy riding difficult and problem horses for friends and barn mates; I then began starting horses under saddle when I was 14 and specializing in off the track Thoroughbreds and retooling them for new careers in the sport horse world.

I Moved to Quincy Ca in 2005, a small town nestled in the Sierra Nevada where I attended Feather River College and received my Associates of Science Degree in Equine Science with concentrations in Training and Management. I began working my English show horses out on some working cattle ranches and found that giving them a real job outside of the arena proved very enhancing for the horse's mind. I was then chosen for a Ray Hunt winter workshop in Texas, and once the workshop was over I was asked to stay and work and live in Texas for Ray Hunt.

Working for Ray I was immersed in starting colts in what most people would call the ‘natural horsemanship’ style but what Ray would just call common sense. I was in Texas for a little over a year- and loved every second of it. All through my journey I took in outside horses for training and slowly began teaching their owners along with their horses, this very quickly turned into teaching individual lessons.

I Returned in Santa Cruz in 2009 to start Pacific View Sport Horses, which now has developed into a primarily Hunter/ Jumper program. Our program attends monthly shows either local as well as two to three Rated shows per year. Rosy Shows her horse Jeri in the jumpers on the A circuit.
