Swanhill Farms* 8500 Waters Road Moorpark, Ca 93021

  • Take your best route to the CA 118/E. Los Angeles Ave. and turn onto Balcom Canyon Rd (there will be only one way you can turn regardless of which way you’re heading.)
  • In about 1.5 miles, turn right onto Stockton Rd. Follow Stockton for about 2 miles and turn left on Waters Rd.
  • The ranch is actually at the very end of Waters road. (Be aware Google maps and a lot of GPS units put 8500 a block early.)
  • The pavement will end and you’ll proceed on the dirt road into the ranch parking area.
  • After parking, head up the dirt road to the left up the hill, past the dressage arena (it’s lined with cones that have letters on them) to the large arena at the top of the hill.
  • If you are hauling in horses, you may continue to the left up the hill to the arena for drop off. Be careful, as the road can be rutted, particularly after a rain. Unfortunately, there is otherwise NO parking at the arena (there is, however a tie rail).

Open to any participants regardless of territory of residence.

Unmounted ground crew training available.
