Membership is REQUIRED to ride at the Santa Ynez Valley Equestrian Center, except when competing in shows.
The Santa Ynez Valley Equestrian Association is a non-profit organization based in the Santa Ynez Valley of California’s golden Central Coast. Our facility is open to all member riders and it is our mission to create access and opportunity for people and their horses to come together to learn, ride and show safely.
Our organization hosts a variety of equestrian events each year at the Santa Ynez Valley Equestrian Center including Reining, Cow Horse, Western, Dressage and Hunter/Jumper shows as well as Riding Clinics and Equestrian Exhibitions. We encourage participation in these events not only from our members, but also the entire community. The Equestrian Center is also home to Santa Barbara Sheriffs Posse and Santa Ynez Valley Therapeutic Riding , which has provided freedom and companionship for physically and mentally challenged children across the Valley since 1998.
Members of the Santa Ynez Valley Equestrian Association are welcome to use the Equestrian Center every day unless the arenas are closed due to inclement weather.
