Ideal San Diego competition facility is ready to welcome more events.

Hunter Equestrian Center is a beautiful facility in North San Diego County that wants to offer its facility to horse show managers looking for a reasonably-priced venue to host their events.

President of the Southern California Reining Horse Association, Lori Riis states, “Hunter Equestrian Center is a top-notch facility for our one-day reining shows. The huge 300’ x 200’ reining arena has excellent footing, and it is a great location with ample parking.”

Owner Michell Anne Kimball, owner of top international level reining horses, originally acquired half of the current equestrian center in 2005. She bought the neighboring facility in 2008 and has continually improved the now 30-acre equestrian center. She also owns an adjacent nine-acre parcel that has potential as a cross country course.

The amenities are endless from the huge reining arena, jumping arena, full and half court dressage arena, warm-up arena, and small schooling arena. The center has two round pens, including one that is covered. It has a beautiful show barn with rubber center aisle pavers, grooming stalls and separate veterinarian and farrier areas. Two Eurocisers are also on site. With safety for horse and rider in mind, Hunter Equestrian Center is a welcome venue for shows, events and trainers.

Also in the works is a large covered arena that will be installed in the near future.

Michell is interested in offering the facility on a per-horse fee instead of a large fee, making smaller shows or events affordable for both the exhibitor and show manager. Hunter Equestrian Center can also offer limited overnight stabling and it is a good location for english or western events. Driving and cow working events will not be accepted.

Dressage trainer Robin Garrett operates out of HEC and offers beginning to Grand Prix dressage training. Robin is also a breeder of top-level dressage horses. To contact Robin call her at 769-716-3401.

Michell also has room for a trainer with clients, and a house on site is also available to rent.
