Meet Instructor

Scarlett Zerafa

Scarlett has been competing successfully in the Arabian horse industry at a Class A, Regional and National level. As a 'horse crazy' little girl, Scarlett joined her Mom in their mutual passion with horses at the young age of 4.  She has competed in all different disciplines and was very successful during high school on their MIHA Equestrian Team winning multiple State Championships with her Arabian gelding. The last couple of years she has worked with several nationally know Arabian trainers and is a fantastic instructor. 


You will recognize Scarlett's big smile, bright attitude and impressive knowledge of horse and rider. 


We invite you to visit us...

Scottsdale Equestrian Academy, Inc. (SEA) is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit corporation that provides equestrian lessons with the popular Arabian Horse breed.  Our goal is to enable riders of all ages to experience and bond with this majestic and gentle breed. The Academy offers lessons in English and Western disciplines.  

Our Facility

Our facility is located just minutes from the 101 N and Desert Ridge on 5 beautiful acres in the Sonoran Desert.


The stables were designed for the well-being of our horses as well as the safety and convenience of our students and staff.  We offer dedicated training spaces with plenty of covered seating for relaxing and viewing the horses and grounds.


Our covered round pen is a great space for riders of all ages to get comfortable with the horses.  We also offer an extra large outdoor riding arena for our riders as they advance.   


We have a tack room that provides everything the horse and rider will need for a successful adventure.
