Carmel Valley Trail & Saddle Club

Since 1956

Map

  • As a courtesy to our neighbors, please travel at no more than 25 mph on Boronda and Garzas Roads.
  • The speed limit in the club is 8 mph. Please park in designated areas only.
  • Dogs are not permitted at any clinic, show or event. Otherwise they must be on a leash or left at home. The safety of horse and rider is our first priority.
  • Although the Trail and Saddle Club hosts many non-equine events every year, it is a horse facility first. Horses can be unpredictable and guests should always consider the safety of riders and their mounts when visiting the club.

HEADS UP: If you are unfamiliar with the Monterey Peninsula, and using a navigation service to guide you to our address, be advised that such services may direct you to use Laureles Grade Road as a connector between Hwy 68 and Carmel Valley Road. If you are hauling horses, however, you may want to avoid the curves and 10% grade and come by way of Hwy 1, taking Carmel Valley Road east from Carmel instead.

The Carmel Valley Trail and Saddle Club is located at 85 East Garzas Road in Carmel Valley. However, if you are sending us mail via the US Postal Service, please address it to:
