Nestled on 20 acres amid the avocado and lemon grove covered hills of Somis, CA, Spirit Equestrian is a Premier Southern California competitive training and boarding facility featuring top-notch hunter/jumper and dressage trainers. Spirit boasts a unique microclimate fueled by cool ocean breezes, resulting in temperatures that average 10 to 15 degrees cooler than the surrounding communities of Moorpark, Thousand Oaks, and Simi Valley.
Spirit Equestrian features three full-sized dressage courts, a 200x300 jump arena, a 150x200 jump arena, a covered round pen, a European Hot Walker, and lighted arenas for evening riding. Our arenas feature truly world-class footing, and are dragged and watered daily. Horses are fed top-quality hay 3x per day and stalls and automatic waterers are cleaned and checked daily. Turnout is available in large paddocks and grass pastures. There are a wide variety of stabling options available at Spirit, from the ever popular half or full-covered 24’x24’ mare motels to box stalls featuring stable comfort mattress systems, your horse is sure to love life here at Spirit: Where Horses Come First.
Spirit Equestrian is also home to one of only 4 Dressage Riding Simulators in the US, and the first in California. "Luke" can help you hone your riding skills and provide feedback without the added difficulty of a live horse.
After you’ve had a chance to view everything our website has to offer, be sure to stop by the office for a tour of the facility, we’d love to show you what Spirit is all about. Spirit is also home to several shows, clinics, and events each year. Be sure to check our Events page for full details.
