Horse Property and Horse Activity in California -
California is second only to Texas in the state’s number of horses! Yet in California more
money is earned and spent by its horse industry than in Texas. You name the breed or
activity and California has it.
Also, don’t forget this is a state of varied terrain and some is of
great interest to tourists, so there are tons of trail rides and dude ranches. But of course
to have trail rides, that means the land is open to horseback riding, even if you are a resident!!
So from breed and discipline shows; from trail rides and open lands for riding; and from
race track to race track, with all popular breeds being represented along with all riding
disciplines, plus often wonderful weather, there is no dearth of horse activity for the horse
owner,rider, breeder or fancier, in California. It would be more apt to say all horses
and riding styles are well and delightfully ensconced in this state, associations, clubs,
communities, races, day camps and tons of clinics abound.
Let’s face it, California has the largest state population, some open land and some
of the largest cities in the US. So why wouldn’t it have whatever horse, and riding style
along with most of the known horse sports?
Now horse property is as diverse as the land: Pacific Coast, Sierra Nevada Mts. Redwood and
fir forests, plus the Mojave Desert, with Central Valley agriculture in the middle. Both the
highest and lowest point in the US are in California and the coastline is pretty long (just
behind Alaska and Florida’s coast lines). Of course we all know, California has earthquakes
too, but what’s perfect?
Once you have chosen a favored landscape, be sure to check
average temperatures seasonally for that area, as California temps go from exceeding
hot to subarctic, with lots in between, along much of the state is milder than all the
US northern, north-central and north-eastern states.
The landscapes and terrains of choice are many, and the prices vary, but land and buildings are
fairly expensive compare to some other states. Just look at the online horse property ads and
once you have a personal preference for this or than terrain, contact a few horse land realtors
and email a few horse stables and farms or even better contact the horse association of your
choice and ask for overviews as well as specific information. There’s a lot to choose from in
