Calling all horse owners and enthusiasts in and surrounding San Diego! Horseland SD has openings for interested boarders, as well as opportunities for trainers in search of an elite equestrian facility that can house up to 20+ training horses.

The facility sits on 14 acres in the heart of the Tijuana River Valley. For 70 years, Horseland has provided a safe and welcoming environment for horses and their riders, regardless of discipline or skill. Though new ownership was established in 2017, the intention for Horseland remains the same - to carry on the tradition and history of the farm, and to always provide a safe and enjoyable home for horses and their owners/trainers.


With that mission in mind, new owner, Alejandro Vigil recently hired long-time horseman, Adam Rickart, to manage the boarding operations of the farm. Rickart, originally from Minnesota, was raised within the Arabian horse community and has worked for National level trainers, as well as shown and won many championships as an amateur in elite, national competitions.

Rickart shares, “I look forward to this new adventure, and managing such a great facility that is open to all breeds and riding disciplines. My priority is to maintain a farm that is an enjoyable and safe environment for all of its residents: horses, trainers, boarders and lesson participants.”

Additionally, Vigil and Rickart are collectively offering opening(s) to trainer and/or riding instructors with interest in leasing 10-20+ stalls for their training and/or riding lesson operation at the Horseland property. With excellent riding/jumping arenas, presentation areas, turn-out, a EuroXisor and a variety of stalling accommodations, Horseland can meet the needs of any trainer, specifically those specializing in western, hunter or dressage-related disciplines.  

Individual Boarders with horses are also welcome at the farm, with boarding options to include indoor stalls (12’ x 16’), indoor/outdoor stalls (12’ x 24’), and open air corrals (16’ x 24’). Trailer parking is also offered to boarders; and for trail-riding enthusiasts, easy access can be found to over 70 miles of trails (including the beach)! Boarders have access to shared general facilities as well, including tack rooms, wash racks, arenas and turn-out.

Whether trainer, instructor, or owner/boarder, Horseland SD can offer a safe and happy home for your horses and the facilities to accommodate all levels of skill and involvement.
