Premier West Stables | Nicole Johnson

Premier West Stables, Inc. is located at Rancho Riding Club, nestled in the heart of beautiful Rancho Santa Fe, CA. The club offers 24 security, lush box stalls, 4 riding arenas, a newly renovated hot walker, hot/cold wash racks and miles of groomed trails.

A native of San Diego, Nicole Johnson grew up with horses and started riding at the age of four. Having the opportunity to work with several trainers over the years, she has a mixed breed background and experience with several different disciplines including saddle seat, western, hunt seat and driving. During her teen years, she actively competed in rodeo queen pageants, barrel racing, team roping and team penning. Prior to operating her own business, Nicole worked closely with Anne Speck at Rancho Del Mar with notable champions Ariana Corrigan, Jacqueline Beck, Tayler Walters, Eric Antman, Mackenzie Lyttle and several great horses.

Premier West specializes in the Morgan breed, but services horses and customers from several walks of life.  With an active lesson program, summer camps, organized group trail rides and a full show schedule there’s not much down time. But it’s not uncommon to see the group throw a last minute Friday mixer, or get together for a pizza party or group dinner. Many of the kids spend their weekends at the barn helping with daily activities and mingling with friends. Premier West is proud of their 2011 Grand National Winner’s Victoria Walz and Ben Stout, top 3 Junior Exhibitor Park Champion Jillian Hansen, Region 7 Champions Emma Pedersen, Victoria Walz, Ben Stout and Natalie Wiley.

The program offers full training, full service horse care and a lesson program for adults and children of all ages and experiences in western riding and saddle seat. More information and pictures can be found at or follow us on Facebook.
