Hello, and thank you for viewing this community site committed to covering horse-friendly topics and activities as well as connecting with local businesses and establishments!
As a lifetime native of Carmel Valley and the surrounding areas, I feel Carmel Valley is the finest place to pursue a rural lifestyle while enjoying beautiful scenery and being close to the Monterey Peninsula. Carmel Valley is a local's delight, making it famous for wines, food, art, olive oil and agriculture.
Carmel Valley residents are well-rounded and find life here is a unique and rewarding retreat from the typical Californian pace.
For those of us who have lived here forever, this is no surprise, and we are just thrilled to see the quality of our lives improve with each season.
The Carmel Valley Horse. . .
I feel the area has an amazing history in how horsemanship has developed and so much of what is popular in riding today has deep roots here in our very own Carmel Valley! From working cattle, to dressage, to pleasure riding in the hills, Carmel Valley is home to horse lovers of all disciplines.
As a small child, I lived across Carmel Valley Road from Ray Hackworth's ranch, and maybe it's those early memories that stamped the love of horses onto my subconscious. Horses have been a lifetime passion, and now I would like to share lots of horsey experience, research and activities with others who are interested in horses or even just businesses and local flavor.
Please contact me with your horse stories, or local events and businesses! I'd like to go on a quest to discover and rediscover my home stomping grounds making it fun for all who come along for the ride.
