Mokelumne River Ranch Equestrian Center
A Boarding, Riding, & Training Facility!
“A Place to Ride, Train, Relax, & Enjoy Owning A Horse”!
History: Mokelumne River Ranch was purchased in 1988 as distressed Farm Land. It was thencleared and developed as a “Rare Breed Conservancy” for “Primitive and Endangered” breeds of Domestic Livestock, “Sheep, Goats, Pigs, & Cattle”. The owners developed this project for just over eleven years. At one time the Ranch had the largest collection of these Endangered Breeds anywhere on the North American Continent! Finances, the Market, and the Work involved, forced the closure and sale of the project.
For the next six years the Ranch was leased out to several “Horse Trainers, Breeders, and Horse Dealers”, some good, some bad! The Ranch fell into huge disrepair! The owners then decided to move back, installed a new home, and began rebuilding the Ranch to accommodate the Equestrian Community. Many, many, improvements have been made over the past few years and many more are being planned! Several more “failed attempts” were made at finding the right “Horse-Person” to manage and run the Facility! In March of 2008, the owners found it necessary to develop the Boarding Service on their own in order to provide the “quality of service” in mind.
Philosophy and Development:
The Ranch will be developed to accommodate both “English & Western” Disciplines in Riding.
We will cater to those that like to “Ride and spend Quality Time” with their Horse!
A place to ride & train your own horse at your own pace! Non-Resident Trainers will be welcome!
Rudeness and Disrespect to others will not be tolerated!
We are “Horse Friendly”!
Our Stalls are large 12’x 12’, 12’x 14’, 12’x 16’, 12’x 18‘, & 12’x 24’! They all have rubber matted floors, ample shavings, automatic waterers, solid tung & groove siding & good Air Circulation!
Our “adjoining” Paddocks or Runs are large 12’x 36’, 18’x 36’, & 48’x 48’!
The Paddocks are Well Drained, Gravel & Sand, & enclosed with safe Pipe Rail Fencing! All Horses have access to large, Irrigated Pasture/Turn-outs!
We are developing a lengthy Western Trail Training & Obstacle Course “approximately 2 miles” in length with some cross-country jumps included!
This will be an on-going project for years to come, so bear with us!
BE GOOD TO YOUR HORSE! BE GOOD TO YOURSELF!
