NOTE: Plainfield Ridge closed in mid 2019. 

Plainfield Ridge was a horse boarding facility with a huge indoor arena and very friendly boarders. They had an outdoor jumping arena and turnout arena that could both be used during the dry months. All stalls arewerelarge, comfortable and fitted with misters to help the horses deal with the Davis summer heat. Stalls had fresh shavings all the time and good footing. Stall water iswasprovided using the preferred float mechanism and did not rely on muzzle pressure. Horses were given alfalfa in the morning and a variety of local grass hay in the afternoon. Most of the riding seen at Plainfield Ridge is of European style including dressage and jumping. However, some Western pleasure riding could be seen.

The area is endemic with beautiful magpies, meadowlarks, and blackbirds. Two barn owls have been roosting in the indoor arena as the owners have set up a nesting site. The property has a beautiful variety of plants growing on it and there is usually something in bloom at any time of the year. The jumping arena becomes rich with tall grass after rain much to the delight of the horses who graze on it. ;)
