Since we are located in a residential area, parking is tight. Please park on the left side of the main house and walk through the gates that say “Sacramento Equestrian Center” (do not knock on the door to the main house). Walk straight past the covered arena and follow the road to the right. At the right side of the Red Barn is an office area where you can wait. Our trainers could be in a lesson and will be with you shortly.
