The City’s Yucaipa Equestrian Center, located at 13273 California Street Yucaipa, Ca 92399, is the place where local horse lovers meet. The Equestrian Center has two arenas:
- The one-acre main arena is a full-size arena which is set up for rodeos with spectator stands. This arena is perfect for horse shows, 4-H, CSHA, obstacle challenges, gymkhanas, and other events
- The smaller arena is used for warm ups and is ideal for cattle events such as ranch sorting and team penning
Many local horse groups regularly use the arena for their activities, and you will find something happening most weekends – spectators are welcome to stop by and watch anytime. Gymkhanas are exciting as riders race around poles and barrels to get the quickest times. During horse shows, beautifully groomed show horses with riders in dazzling outfits perform in halter, English and Western classes.
Some weekends you will see riders trying to outmaneuver cattle while racing against the clock. At other times, you can watch the Yucaipa Sheriff’s Mounted Posse members train their horses for police activities and crowd control. Occasionally there are clinics, where several unusual obstacles are set up, and horses are trained to go over or through them. The Yucaipa Equestrian Arena Committee, Inc. (YEAC) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that promotes the use of the Yucaipa Equestrian Center; to preserve, maintain and improve the facility; and to involve the community in equestrian activities such as 4-H, horse shows, clinics, seminars, gymkhanas, etc.
