Southern California Equestrian Center


Just 30 minutes west of the San Fernando Valley, lies the quaint town of Somis, a small bustling community, home to restaurants, boutiques and a host of agricultural farms producing many of the vegetables and fruits we find in our kitchens. In the heart of Somis, nestled among pepper and eucalyptus trees, lemon groves, and avocados trees, you will find The Southern California Equestrian Center, a tranquil, full service equestrian facility offering both owners and horses a peaceful place to ride, learn and escape.

Important Safety Notes


Horse riding is a fun and rewarding experience. Safety should remain a top priority. When participating in our events, competition always comes second to the safety of not only the rider, but the horse. Our facility offers an exciting and joyous place for both horses and riders.


Whatever your boarding arrangement, your horse’s welfare is an important responsibility. We take great care with every horse to provide the proper attention they need to be well adjusted and healthy. If your horse suddenly needs special attention, we want their needs met promptly.
