Nearly 50 years of experience
Parkside Stables was established in 1970 by Vicki Bergvin. Vicki and family built Parkside from a small family and friend hobby barn into the most successful show barn in the Pacific Northwest. Our head trainers, Morgan and Nora Thomas, have more than thirty years of riding experience each. Our diverse training team, collectively, brings a cross section of unique critical skills and capabilities to support our riders and horses.
Success is measured in many ways: competition record, rider safety record, animal welfare, community (clients and employees), client service and outstanding partnerships. Parkside’s longevity and reputation are a testament to why riders and their families continually seek out our training program and facilities to begin or continue their love of horses and competitive riding.
A haven of green, just outside the city
Parkside stables is set on three acres, abutting 640 acres of Bridle Trails State Park, six miles from Seattle. Horses enjoy extra large stalls, five spacious paddocks, dedicated onsite medical care and daily exercise. Our training arena and state of the art equipment and footing, prepares riders and horses for top competition in Hunter, Jumper and Equitation equestrian disciplines. Riders and families enjoy a safe, customized training program, lockers, covered arena, heated viewing area and a supportive, inclusive, friendly, horse-loving community.
