About Us

Scenic City Equestrian Center @ Phoenix Farms opened its gates in October 2016 in Ringgold, Georgia. The facility and business is owned and managed by the Baleeiro family. Jennifer Keates-Baleeiro and Carlos Baleeiro, along with their children Sophia and Carlos, are happy to offer professional boarding, riding and related horse services to the greater Chattanooga area. A hunter-jumper rider at an early age living in New Jersey, Jennifer is excited to now share the joy of horses with her family and the community. The Baleeiros, along with the rest of the SCEC family, invite you to join them and experience it too!
