Boarding Options

About Us


From beginners to advanced riders, for leisure or show - count on our Equestrian Center to take your riding to the next level. Originally a Walnut farm, Iron Horse was designed by the best architects from luxury Kentucky ranches to make our facility the state of the art Center it is today.  

Our Amenities


With three outdoor rings, as well as a spacious indoor, with top quality footing, IHEC is accommodating to all equine disciplines. Iron Horse has a 6 horse Eurocisor, round pen and countless turnouts all open to our clients with a ‘first come, first serve’ policy. Just to top off all the facilities listed above, we have walking trails with DG footing running through the facility to enjoy the beautiful California climate. 



Iron Horse has a total of 3 barns, as well as 15 mare motels that run along our walking trails. In each of the barns we have fly repellent misters, fans, and daily services to keep the stalls in clean condition for your equine partner. In each barn are cross ties for all grooming needs, as well as wash racks just outside the barns. In each barn is a tack room with bridle and saddle racks designated to each client. 

Different Boarding Options


About Our Boarding Options

Below you will find a more detailed description about what our barns have to offer. 

Main Barn

Our 28 stall main barn has 12x12 stalls with grain bins and automatic fly repellent dispensers. Our Hunter Jumper trainer, Hilary Johnston, is primarily based out of this barn. This barn has two tack rooms, as well as two cross ties, and is attached to our indoor ring. 

Paddock Barn

Our 23 Stall paddock barn has 12x12 stalls with a spacious 12x12 paddock attachment. In each stall is a sliding door which opens up to each paddock as well. Within the barn is a tack room and three cross ties. Our dressage trainer, Nadine Pestana, bases her business primarily out of this barn. 

Mare Motels

We have a total of 15 mare motels that run along our walking paths, underneath the trees. The biggest amount of space for our boarders at 24x24, this is a great option for horses that are more content with a larger amount of space. All mare motels have automatic water dispensers and grain bins as well. A wooden tack trunk is attached to all mare motels to keep blankets and any other ‘horsey clothing’ protected fin the conditions. 

Private Barn

Built in 2018, our private barn comes only with eight stalls that have a 12x12 indoor stall and a 12x24 paddock attached for maximum comfort. A tack room, sitting room, private turnouts and private ring are all inclusive in this rate. Next to the barn are two cross ties, as well as an outdoor patio.
