Ancient Oaks is a small horse ranch nestled in the Santa Cruz Mountains. We moved here in 1992 and share our ranch with our horses, Therapy Dogs, cats, chickens, a covey or two of quail and occasionally deer who wander through our property to share the pasture and apple trees with our horses. We enjoy riding in the beautiful redwood forest of Henry Cowell and Big Basin State Parks which are located within a 20 min drive from our ranch. We are avid trail riders and have participated and attended the clinics of Monty Roberts and Pat Parelli and have trained our horses using their methods of “natural horsemanship”. We are also active members of the Santa Cruz County Horsemen’s Association.
