Our Philosophy

Gateway Riding Center offers customized training, lesson and exercise packages.  Jonelle Reuland, head trainer will meet with you to develop a training or lesson package that meets your specific goals.

Many equestrians come to Gateway Riding Center because they are committed to becoming the best rider they can be, with the horse they already own. Although lessons and training are not required, most boarders do take regular weekly lessons and many have their horses in a regular training program. This gives them the opportunity to learn while their horses are learning, too.

Whatever your passion dressage, leadership and behavior, hunt seat, western pleasure or gaited horses our goal is to help your horse develop balance and flexibility while you develop timing, feel and a secure seat.

Gateway Riding Center Directions

Gateway Riding Center is conveniently located at 2280 Plainfield Road, in Oswego, Ill., within minutes of Naperville, Aurora, Downers Grove and Plainfield,  at the intersection of Douglas and Plainfield Roads. Our 38 stall boarding and training facility on nearly 25 acres offers indoor and outdoor riding areas and a bridle path around the property.

We offer daily turnout, weather permitting, using a combination of pasture and dirt paddocks. Turnout groups are carefully chosen, and then monitored, because at Gateway, our priority is the safety of both horses and riders.

While most of our boarders are not competitive riders, they do share the common goals of learning to ride more effectively, improving their horses’ and their own personal performance, and enjoying time with people who feel the way they do.

Most of our boarders and lesson students have been with us since our facility was established in 1999 but we welcome new boarders and lesson students who want a place to enjoy their horses in a positive,
supportive environment.


Gateway Riding Center is located at Douglas and Plainfield Roads in Oswego, Ill.
