ABOUT PEPPERCORN RANCH

"Peppercorn Ranch and Greg Coulson provide a wonderful place with great intstructors and horses, he has a fantastic facility to teach young and old, eventers, jumpers, dressage, or trail riders.  I love every moment there!"
   Honor B.

THE FACILITY

The location is stunning.  It includes a breathtaking view of the Upper Ojai Valley and is surrounded by natural Southern California habitat.  The Ranch is very quiet with a select clientele and personalized service.   Amenities include a variety of sheltered paddocks, wash racks, lighted sand ring, round pen, dressage ring, stadium jumps, cross country jumps, and gallop track. There are short local trails as well as access to the Los Padres National Forest trail system.  We are the only facility in the area to have such a variety of schooling options.

We live on the ranch and directly care for the horses.  You are assured that your animals will receive the best personal care!


OUR GOAL

Our goal is to provide fun and education on horseback for people interested in pursuing equestrian sports.
 
Lessons include all aspects of basic horsemanship, safety, husbandry, and riding skills as well as competitve skills for  horses and riders.  Training can be starting horses under saddle as well as schooling on advanced skills.

We are approved and provide services for the United States Pony Clubs, Boy Scouts of America, and Girl Scouts of the United States of America

OUR SPORT

We specialize in English riding, especially dressage and jumping required for horse trials and three day events. A horse trial is a lower form of the three day event as seen in the Olympic Games. It consists of a dressage test, cross country jumping test, and stadium jumping test. Dressage is riding on the flat; demonstrating obedience, agility, flexibility, balance, and lightness.
Cross country jumping tests boldness, power, agility, and stamina through negotiating solid obstacles over difficult terrain at speed. Stadium jumping demonstrates obedience, power, and flexibility when jumping a colorful course in an arena setting. Eventing is a true complete test for horse and rider.

OUR HISTORY

Peppercorn was started in 1986.  Greg Coulson and Lauren Royce have strived to make the ranch a family friendly place for equestrian sport and recreation.  Lessons and training prepare people and horses for
 competitions, but the ranch is also a tranquil location to enjoy nature with horses.  All levels of riders are welcome. 

THE LOCATION

Peppercorn Ranch is located within easy commute from Ventura, Oxnard, Santa Paula, Fillmore, and Ojai.  It is 10
