Keeping horses at home is a dream for many. These four Southern California properties offer opportunities to do that in style and with the amenities needed to ride, train and, above all, enjoy horses in your own backyard.


This unbeatable coastal location offers an unheard of 18.68 acres in the desirable beach community of Del Mar. The centerpiece is a newly constructed, Kentucky-style courtyard barn with 22 perfect stalls, approved and prepared for expansion of up to 60 total. The property includes a plentiful well with water storage, paved and chip sealed drive, security gates, five fire hydrants, laser leveled arenas and paddocks, and an all-weather track throughout.

An exceptional home site overlooking the equestrian center invites a custom view home or an opportunity to revamp the existing 4,000 square foot residence located next door to Rancho Pacifica, one of the most upscale and exclusive neighborhoods in San Diego County. This entire property has been well designed for any breed or discipline, and is truly an environment for excellence.
