About Us

Denise Frisco
Owner of Cavallo Creek Farm and Jumpers International, Importer of Dutch Warmblood Sporthorses


She started out riding ponies by the age of 7, then grew into riding young horses as a pre and early teen on her grandfathers Quarter Horse ranch in Arroyo Grande, California. In her mid teens she rode in 4-H, then later started riding hunters in Southern California. It didn’t take long before she needed the savage thrill of adrenalin, so she set out to the jumper ring. She rode sales horses for a few years while working occasionally as a vet assistant at Santa Anita Racetrack. Acknowledging the trend of the Warmblood horses being imported from Europe and winning in the shows, Denise set her sights on foreign soil and before long had packed up and moved across the Atlantic.


She rode for several years in Italy competing on various horses before she settled it at a grand prix show jumping barn outside Verona, Italy. It was while in Verona she maintained riding approximately 8 horses a day and caring for millions of dollars worth of equine flesh.  After nearly 7 years in Italy, Denise became known not as an “American”, but as more as a “European”. From Holland to Italy, she built a network of knowing the best show-jumping professionals and breeders in the business, from Holland to Italy. With her years of experience, she finally was ready to build her own operation, hence the building of the well constructed “Cavallo Creek Farm”, which she built to house her imported Dutch Warmbloods in addition to a few other outside show horses. Denise is very active in her community by donating time and is responsible for raising or donating over $100,000 in funds to various charities such as The Montgomery County Food Bank, The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and the Boys and Girls Club just to name a few.
