Alex and Shawn Skylark
I'm Alex Skylark, just an ordinary girl who has always had a passion for horses. I grew up on a farm in New Mexico and spent my childhood riding and showing in local gymkanas and rodeos. When I was 19, I moved to Los Angeles and had to leave my agricultural background behind. I got married to a wonderful man who also loves horses and after the birth of our son, Griffin, I felt the pull again to re-enter the horse world. I thought we could buy a bit of land and put in a little barn to stable our family horses. Then we found this gorgeous property in Brentwood and the rest is history!
Skylark Equestrian LLC is a boarding and training facility specializing in Dressage and three day eventing. My husband Shawn and I strive to provide a friendly and supportive working environment for both our humans and horses, and consider our clients as members of our extended "barn family."
When we found this extraordinarily beautiful 30 acre parcel of land and had a vision. In our minds eye we could already see the beautiful tongue and groove barn, arenas, and pastures filled with horses and people all working toward a common goal. We envisioned a place where you could come to reconnect with nature, find some good friends and feel like you are coming home; a barn where someone would always be around to help with your horse or answer a question, and where you could get the level of training that will have you coming home from every horse show in the ribbons.
I am proud to say that our vision, after a grueling journey of hard work, set backs and endless frustrations has finally come to pass.
Please come on out to Skylark and join our family.
