European Pony School

Our Instructors

Zabou Cullum, Director
Zabou was born and raised in France where she started riding at the age of 12 in a similar program to the European Pony School. She competed at show jumping through the upper levels. Zabou came to Santa Rosa in 1987 to work for Yves and Christine Sauvignon, the founders of Oakridge Training Stables (now Santa Rosa Equestrian Center) and the European Pony School.

She stayed at Oakridge as a manager and instructor until 2006. Zabou teaches children with the same high standards she was taught. She strongly believes that while learning to ride and care for ponies is a lot of fun, it also teaches body coordination, focus, control of emotions, responsibility and tenacity.

Katie Franchini, Instructor
Katie started her riding career right here at the European Pony School. Her childhood pony, Taffy, is one of our most popular school ponies. Katie competes at the preliminary level with her Thoroughbred, Cozzell. She is also an important presence at shows when Team EPS competes. Katie has been an instructor at EPS since 2004.

The European Pony School is a riding academy for children ages 5-15 located in Santa Rosa, California. Founded in 1986, the European Pony School has developed a reputation not only for its success in teaching children the skills of horsemanship and riding, but also for encouraging self discipline, responsibility and self esteem.

Many Pony School graduates have reached the top level of national and international competition, while many others safely enjoy the local shows and pleasures of trail riding. No matter what kind of riding they choose to pursue all of our students are taught to value the partnership between horse and rider.
