Herd Members are experienced horse people who most likely keep their horses at home. Most live on the beautiful Central Coast and make riding a priority. They are passionate about taking care of their horses and many enjoy getting out on the trail. Our herd members are tightly connected in a variety of equestrian disciplines making them influencers not only within SLO County but also to the horse community beyond.
