Ortega Mountain Ranch





No longer forward nor behind
I look in hope or fear;
But, grateful, take the good I find,
The best of now and here.
—John Greenleaf Whittier




Our 42-acre ranch is designed with the welfare and comfort of the horse in mind, and we offer exclusive boarding for retired horses and lay-ups. Boarding at Ortega Mountain Ranch is in a natural setting that includes daily personal care and hands-on attention to each and every horse at the ranch. Our philosophy is based on Holistic Natural Healing and Natural Horsemanship, and everything we do reflects this.

DSCN1631The security and comfort of the horse is our top priority at Ortega Mountain Ranch. Boarding consists of either private or group paddocks of various sizes. Every paddock has a shade/rain cover and room for the horse to exercise. Our facility also has an enclosed round pen, wash rack, cross ties, tie pole, a 5-acre seasonal pasture planted in 4 different types of native grasses, and a natural terrain turnout pasture.

Top quality hay is fed twice daily, paddocks are cleaned twice daily, and each paddock has a large trough of fresh, clean well water. We also offer additional services such as supplement feeding, blanketing, and barefoot hoof care. Custom Extra Care packages are also available.IMG_1367

The horses of Ortega Mountain Ranch are truly happy here. We take pride in caring for all of the horses at Ortega Mountain Ranch as if they were our own.
