the history

Welcome to the Southern California Equestrian Center, formerly known as Mission Pacific Equestrian Center.

With new ownership came an updated name change, we intend to build on what Shawn and James Lowe have built and developed here while updating and expanding the facility. Once home to Zsa Zsa Gabor’s famous horses, this 50 stall indoor barn has everything an owner will need for their beloved horse. Gabor’s publicist says she bought the horse ranch on Sand Canyon Road, not far from Moorpark, because she was fed up with Beverly Hills and planned to retire there, although Gabor herself stated, “I’ve had it with Beverly Hills!” and acknowledged her Bel-Air home was for sale, she denied any plans to withdraw from city life, much less retire. “The horses are going to be looked after like babies,” she said.

It is the intention to update and improve this facility under the ownership of Nancy O’Reilly and we look forward to continuing to build and maintain the relationships we have developed over the years. New ownership, same beautiful facility.
