The company is owned and managed by Holly and John Mathis.
Holly has been professionally trained in the Thoroughbred industry. She has a Bachelors Degree in Animal Science from Southern Illinois University, specialized in Thoroughbred reproduction and care. In addition to being formally educated in equine science and management, she has also worked for others within the Thoroughbred industry. As a child she enjoyed horseback riding and has been a horse owner most of her life. While working at Lone Cedar Farm, a racehorse breeding and training facility, she decided she wanted her own business. The construction of Ridgewood Stables began soon after. John has also been involved with horses most of his life, from helping his Grandpa take care of racehorses as a young boy, to participating in rodeos during high school and college, and now the breeding and foaling operation.

These services include a variety of options for broodmares, youngsters requiring daily attention and handling, and post-operative rehabilitative service for recovering horses.
