FULL CARE BOARD is offered here at Alicorn Stables. Boarding includes daily turnout, daily stall cleaning, hay (grain/supplements supplied by owner), horses fed 2X/day, use of amenities.
LESSONS are offered by Kari Wetherill. Whether you are a first-time rider, need some brushing up, or feel the need to experience jumping or dressage, Kari offers lessons tailored to each individual’s need. Most lessons are private, running 30-60 minutes (depending on the need of the horse/rider). Small group lessons can be arranged at Kari’s discretion.
TRAINING of your equine partner: Does your horse need a tune-up? Are you too busy and want your horse to get enough exercise? Need some fine tuning? Or even colt starting (horses are accepted at Kari’s discretion)?
Full-time training consists of 5 rides per week. One ride per week may be exchanged for a lesson with your horse in training. Partial training and individual rides available as well.
SADDLE FITTING services offered as well! Kari offers onsite flocking and saddle fit evaluation, with recommendations for new saddle fit or shimming options when necessary.
Sonja Vracko a very wise and hands down caring human being. When I had the opportunity to speak with Sonja, she wanted to emphasize to me, that in her lessons, she doesn’t use anything but energy and voice. Her pureness with the horses is a great and valuable tool to all that learn from her. Find all about Sonja Vracko and View Ridge Farm.
Sonja began teaching in the United States in 1969. She created View Ridge Farm Equestrian Center in 1978, where to this day she trains riders and horses through all levels. During yearly horse purchasing trips for clients, Sonja keeps up with her education and rides with some of the top European trainers. She also hosts clinics at her farm with well renowned European Clinicians.

As pole barn builders, our building techniques allow for economical, flexible and timely building options, whether building an agricultural barn, gambrel style barn or monitor style barn. A finished, post-frame barn is more energy efficient and weather resistant than many other types of construction. We are proud to say we have built hundreds of barns and agricultural buildings throughout Skagit, Whatcom, Snohomish and Island counties.
