Meet the Trainers

Tesi Bruckner

Tesi is our barn manager extraordinaire and head of the lesson program at Trinity Rivers, as well as co-coach of the UCSC Equestrian team. She has been riding since the 4th grade and enjoys working cattle and trail riding with friends.

Tesi's favorite lesson horse is Legs, with his sweet disposition and honesty, it is easy to see why he would be a trainer's favorite. 

Ryan Osterlund

Ryan is the head of the Cowboy School program at Trinity Rivers as well as the program's farrier and overall barn support. He has been riding for 22 years and his favorite horseback activities are cutting and roping.

Ryan had a hard time picking just one favorite lesson horse so he chose Zeus, Ava, AND Duncan.
