Equestrian Facilities...
The Facility is located at 5501 Balcom Canyon Road, Somis, CA between Moorpark and Camarillo close to the Ventura/Los Angeles County border. Set in quiet surroundings, away from traffic noise and urban stress, amongst citrus and avocado groves the ranch benefits from the ocean breeze from Camarillo resulting in temperatures in summer which are 10℉ - 15℉ below those in Thousand Oaks, Moorpark and Simi Valley.

The boarding facilities include at total of 60 stalls, made up of MD BARNMASTER™ In & Out stalls, MD BARNMASTER™ Box Stalls, MD BARNMASTER™ Foaling Stalls and Mare Motel Stalls, each measuring 18ft x 24ft. There are eight, year round, large grass pastures including a hand grazing pasture, five standard pastures and ten large turn outs.

Other facilities include two International sized jumping arenas with extremely well maintained NEWCOURSE JUMPS™ and jumps sourced from Blenheim EquiSports built to replicate a wide range of obstacles found at local, national and international jumping venues. There is an FEI Standard Sized Dressage Court with mirrors and Nike based footing by Footings Unlimited; a Riding Court; Longeing Arena and floodlighting. There is a walking trail and a one and a half furlong riding track edged with Orange, Grapefruit and Pepper trees, and a 3 acre grass jumping field which also has a wide selection of Grand Prix style jumps and permanent water jumps.

All of the Arenas are watered daily in the dry season. The two jumping arenas use a special FIBAR™ footing mixture, which in addition to the outstanding cushioning it provides to the horse's hooves, retains moisture in summer reducing dust, and also absorbs water in the rainy season to ensure that the arenas may be used long before comparable sand based arenas.

There are also a substantial number of MD BARNMASTER™ Groom Stalls and Custom Built Farrier Stations, a specially designed 70 ft. diameter European Equiciser, and a floodlit 60 ft. Round Pen with a 7ft. wooden enclosure and double, full height entry doors
