“Platinum has been absolutely stellar to work with. Not only do they provide an exceptional product that gives our top level horses the nutrients they need to be healthy and recover, but their customer service has been extremely helpful and accommodating. With the amount of travel and competitions that we do, knowing that our Platinum is going to arrive on time and at the next location saves us time and keeps our horses performing at the highest level.” - Cindy Cruciotti, owner and head trainer
Nestled in the high plains and rolling hills of pine trees in Elizabeth, Colorado, Serenity Farm is as it sounds — an equestrian retreat. From its beginning in 2004 as a humble boarding facility, Serenity Farm has blossomed into one of the nation’s premier equestrian facilities with locations now in Elizabeth and Wellington, Florida. It quietly produces top-level horses and riders to compete at the highest echelon of the sport. At Serenity Farm, the belief is that the development of a rider’s fundamental equitation position is the basis for all future success. Equitation should not be taught as a discipline amongst itself, but it should be incorporated into a rider’s basic skillset.
Owned and managed by head trainer Cindy Cruciotti, Serenity Farm has been built over the past 12 years to nurture any level of rider from the very beginner to the international show jumper. Cindy, focuses on a “Form Follows Function” style of riding and has developed countless top riders, including daughter Kelli Cruciotti, who have competed all over the country and abroad. By teaching a rider through a combination of correct flatwork, gymnastics and exercises to be “functional” the correct “form” will follow.
With an impressive resume that includes being named the best Equitation Trainer at the 2015 Capital Challenge Horse Show and the best Equitation Trainer at the 2015 Pessoa Medal Finals, Cindy has been chosen to receive some of the industry’s most impressive awards and accomplishments bestowed on a trainer. In addition to Cindy’s extensive accomplishments as an instructor, she has also ridden and shown many top hunters and is known for her ability to bring along talented young horses.
