The Equestrian Center at The Club at Las Campanas sets a high standard for the care and comfort of horses, as well as the opportunity for members to experience the pure joy of riding. A number of double stalls have been created and we are starting to see an increase in the number of horses being boarded at the barn. A variety of horse breeds and riding disciplines are expertly accommodated and riders of all ages and levels of experience are welcome.
In equestrian sports, the most important piece of equipment is a living, breathing creature. The high level of communication between horse and rider develops into an emotional relationship.
Las Campanas Equestrian Facilities
The exceptionally well planned facility encompasses a world class barn, large sandy turnouts, a 32,000 square foot indoor riding hall, large outdoor jumping rings, an all purpose arena, and access to 68,000 acres of open land and trails. Instructors for western, dressage, and hunter/jumper disciplines are available, as are fully customized on and off-site trail rides, guided by experienced and well-loved wranglers.
