Riding instructor - Julia Bassett
My name is Julia Bassett and I am the riding instructor at Topiary Farms. I'm originally from Wenatchee, Washington.  I moved to California to attend UC Davis  I completed my Bachelors degree in Chemistry. Along side my studies, I continued my passion for horses by becoming a member of the UC Davis Western Equestrian Team. I have ridden horses my whole life and I've competed in the Arabian Horse Association at the national level several times. I've competed in Hunt Seat, Dressage, Western, Reining, Showmanship, Side Saddle, Trail, and have additional experience in many other disciplines. My teaching experience comes from working closely with Joyce Thomas at her training barn, N Joy Arabians, in Olympia, Washington, instructing people of all ages. My goal is to provide the best instruction possible while being safe, meeting my students goals, and most importantly, having fun!
