Ranch Features

Willow Pond Ranch is an upscale facility for those who enjoy sharing in the community of fellow horse enthusiasts. As a former horse rescue and riding school, it has a great local reputation. We now have both a horse therapy service and individual boarding co-existing on the property. With a total of 26 stalls and 8 outside “mare hotel” spaces, 6 turnouts, a round pen, an open arena, a 9000+ sq ft covered arena and a riding trail for advanced riders, we have plenty of space to share.

We have a few spaces left for boarding. We have built a small community here and are hoping to add a few more “self-service” boarders to our “horse family.” Please call us (Jon at 650-580-3696) for more information.


The business has a use permit with the County of Santa Cruz to operate a horse boarding and riding center.
