Welcome to Ranch Dos Palmas

The Premier horse boarding and training facility in Vista, California

Rancho Dos Palmas offers competitive monthly board rates for facilities ranging from 24 x 24 w/shelter to barn stalls with in & outs. We feed twice a day, alfalfa and bermuda, in any combination. With two full-time ranch hands, the facilities are clean and well-maintained. Grooming, clipping, and blanketing as well as supplemental feed and medication services are available and overseen by professional staff. You may also arrange for a veterinary and/or farrier hold-assist if you are not able to be present when your horse needs attention. A Care and Conditioning Program is available daily, weekly or monthly to keep your horse fit and happy if your schedule does not allow you to exercise him/her the requisite minimum of four days weekly.

At Rancho Dos Palmas we believe that good horsemanship should be the rule and not the exception. To assist you in accomplishing your riding goals and deepening your relationship with your horse, we offer a comprehensive and integrated lesson and training program. Lessons are available for children and adults at all levels, whether or not you currently own a horse.

Rancho Dos Palmas cultivates a comfortable, friendly atmosphere where all breeds, flat-work disciplines and riders are welcome.


Rancho Dos Palmas is situated immediately adjacent to the historic Guajome Ranch and County Park, an area steeped in early California tradition. Originally part of the Guajome Fruit Colony, the 8.5-acre ranch enjoys beautiful views of the park and cool ocean breezes year round. Dedicated equestrian trails allow boarders to take a leisurely hour’s ride directly from the Ranch. Terrific riding at Pendleton, Santa Marguerita and San Luis Rey are only a short trailer ride away. Specializing in the western riding tradition, Rancho Dos Palmas is a full service facility.
