The purpose of the Laguna Woods Village Equestrian Center is to bring the joy of horses to all who live in Laguna Woods Village. You can become part of the satisfying and exciting group whose activities are centered around the stables. You'll find that there are activities for everyone -- those who ride and those who don't. You'll find it's easy to make friends and become involved in wonderful activities that are fun and that benefit our community.
The pastoral atmosphere, the gentle presence of these magnificent animals, the joy of horse and rider in motion are just a few of the benefits the stables bring to our lives. You ard your family members will find peace and serenity visiting the horses.
Every resident has the opportunity to ride the 10 GRF horses for lesson and trail rides at reasonable fees. In addtion to the GRF horses that we own in common, stalls exist for boarding horses that belong to individual residents. Laguna Woods Village residents and their guests are entitled to use the stable facilities from Wednesday through Sunday.
The stable supervisior is Michael Settipane.
