Our History


Fortissimo Farm was founded in 2019 by USDF Silver Medalist Laura Goodenkauf.  A lifelong horsewoman, Laura has worked for decades in the equine industry - riding, training, and managing the care of high performance horses.

Fortissimo Farm was designed to be a peaceful, positive training environment where, even in Los Angeles, horses could live a natural life with access to quality hay and outdoor turn out and riders could grow and develop the partnerships with their horses to their fullest potential.
