We offer kids and adults the opportunity to experience horses in a relaxed and safe environment. Our goals are to teach quality horsemanship and solid riding skills. We have the experienced lesson ponies and horses to do that and the instructors to make it a reality.

Here are Sophie on Evie and Sarah on Dougal enjoying the sunshine after a lesson and a walk on the polo field located at South Bay Horse Ranch.


We have horses and ponies available for partial lease. Clients that have partial leases have rights to the horse during lessons, shows and Pony Club activities. Leases cover partial board costs, horse care, use of tack and equipment, routine vet care, dentistry, shoeing, SmartPak supplements and grain.

Delta would be a terrific horse to lease for the kid or adult that wanted to show, jump, trail ride, anything - he can do it all.

Woody is quieter and would be a safe choice for a kid that wanted to learn how to jump cross rails.

Pumpkin would be awesome if you wanted to learn dressage. She is a fabulous mover and well educated.

Please check out our staff pages for their photos and bios.


We had a great birthday party for Taylor. Duchy and Woody were on their best behavior and the kids loved the games we played. Meanwhile the craft was the firm favorite, the duct tape bag.


We were lucky enough to have Randy give a clinic at South Bay shortly after we moved in. Several of our ponies and riders took advantage of this opportunity. Here Katherine and Evie are calmly walking over the tarp. In the foreground is the monkey in the barrel, the riders pulled on a rope and as the lid of the barrel was raised the monkey was exposed. Loved it!
