Dark Horse Farms is an equine training stables specializing in the development and sales of quality show jumpers and derby hunters from young prospects to proven veterans. Our training program evolved from a passion for the horse and a love for the sport of show jumping. Our motivation is the enjoyment of developing young prospects into successful champions. Our goals are to consistently produce winning show jumpers and derby hunters, and to create long lasting relationships with our horse owners and corporate sponsors.
Our training program is base on good horsemanship, ethical fundamentals, a strong foundation and most of all a deep respect for our equine partners. Our facility is ideal for show jumpers and derby hunters to train and relax between competitions, as well as for starting young prospects. Our marketing background and knowledge of the hunter/jumper industry gives us the ability to effectively promote both horses and our team sponsors.
Our private facility is located in the heart of beautiful California's central coast on ten private and tranquil acres in pastoral San Luis Obispo. Surrounded by vineyards the ranch is in close proximity to downtown, the airport and a state of the art equine veterinary clinic. The horses live in our breezeway barn in large box stalls with rubber flooring and two stall gates and have daily access to ample turn outs, wonderful weather and a peaceful atmosphere.
