Equine Event Services – Premier Equestrian Show Facility in San Diego County is Now Open

Equine Event Services is thrilled to announce the grand opening of the long-awaited Dianne Jacobs Equestrian Park, now under their expert management. This brand-new, state-of-the-art facility, spanning 14 acres, is set to redefine the standards of equestrian events in San Diego County.

The Facilities’ Key Features:
• Two expansive 300’ x 150’ show arenas, one of which is covered with advanced lighting and fans.

• High-end audio and video equipment, along with 12’x6’ integrated TVs in both arenas.
• A fully equipped commercial kitchen boasting top-of-the-line appliances.
• Banquet hall accommodating over 200 people, ideal for various events.
• RV parking with full hookups and showers for added convenience.
• Priefert panels and cattle systems, including bucking chutes, roping chutes, and cow pens.

Under the visionary leadership of Sara Alfaro, the Executive Director of Equine Event Services states, “Our facility is not limited to equestrian events. We aspire to host a diverse range of shows, clinics, camps, and even non-equestrian events like dog, boat, RV, car shows, and weddings.”

The Dianne Jacob Equestrian Park opened on Dec. 12, 2023, and will host a variety of horse events in Lakeside, CA for years to come.

Community Engagement:
• The property is fully fenced, ensuring the safety and security of all attendees.
• Equine Event Services will feature 150 box stalls by summer, already with multi-day shows booked.
• Most events are free for spectators, fostering a welcoming atmosphere.
• Public events offer opportunities for non-profit organizations or charities to be involved.
• There is a one-acre public park that opens daily with horse tie rails.

Open Riding and Facility Rental:
• Enjoy at least two open riding days per month for a drop-in fee.
• Rent one or both arenas for “blocked” time to suit your schedule.

Safety Initiatives:
• Safety organizations can utilize the facility for at least two days a month for free training.
• With the addition of box stalls, Equine Event Services aims to be recognized as an evacuation center, staging area, helicopter landing zone, or incident command post during emergencies.

This huge covered arena is the main attraction for the newly constructed 14-acre Dianne Jacob Equestrian Park in Lakeside at the corner of Willow and Moreno. Sara Alfaro, the park operator, is busy working with horse event managers to book the site for what the equestrian community hopes for a wide variety of horse events to be held their year after year.
