We raise fruit without pesticides or chemical fertilizers to sell fresh-picked to local fruit vendors, stores, and the public. Come by in season and we’ll treat you to Navel and Valencia oranges, avocados or Asian pears. We breed, train, exhibit and sell fine gaited horses from Brazil, the Mangalarga Marchadors. Come to us to test drive the ultimate equine all-terrain vehicle, gaited so the rider doesn’t bounce, with the speed, tenacity, and athletic ability to tackle any trail, any sport, any discipline. We board and train horses, specializing in accommodations for very young horses, older horses, “mother” horses who need a place to foal, gaited horses and their riders , riders discovering horses for the first time, and riders ready for wide open spaces.

On the Rancho premises are riding arenas, a 60 ft round pen, three hillside turn-outs, large, shaded paddocks several stud pens, two foaling barns, a 6 horse 60 ft radius hot walker, a tack room for trainers and clients, parking for client’s vehicles and trailelrs, horse bathing stands, a covered, patio next to the foaling barn, toilet facilities in a free standing trailer and, by the end of the summer, a guest facility for overnite stays.
Mangalarga Marchadors first came to the U.S. through the auspices of some Brazilian families (like the Guerra’s of Miami), who brought their own horses over in the 1990’s. Importation proceeded as the breed became known for the quantum leap in athleticism and talent that these horses provide over other trail horses and gaited breeds. At about 15H and 1100 lbs, they are larger than most South American gaited breeds.
