The Cavallo Equestrian Center is coming to life!

Here’s a bird’s eye view of what’s going on out here at Cavallo! The construction of many of the facility’s outdoor features have begun and the ground is being prepared for the irrigated grass turn out pastures that will be planted in the spring. We’re excited to be offering many amenities which will include an outdoor round pen and arena, dedicated trailer parking, and indoor stalls with private run-outs.

There are people busy at work completing the indoor amenities as well, including the secured heated tack room with individual lockers, gathering room with kitchenette, restroom with shower, and wireless monitoring, security and sound system.

A unique feature at Cavallo that is for the horse owners and not their horse, is the Tuscan lookout tower and lounge area. It will be the perfect place to take in the expansive ranch views, enjoying the breeze after a summer trail ride.

Because of Cavallo Equestrian Center’s unique location at Ranch of the Canyons, horse owners will have access to miles of private trails on our property. Not only will you be able to ride the ranch right from the stables, you will also experience the calm and harmony in nature that can only be found on private trails. Our exclusive trails meander the river, lakes, and fields, on our side of Smith Rock and additionally provide an excellent backdrop for wildlife viewing.

Cavallo Equestrian Center will be managed by Brian and Melanie Thomas, owners of Complete Horsemanship who also run the trail ride program for residents and visitors at the ranch. Cavallo will be offering full care boarding and additional personalized services including grooming, bathing, exercising, and training by a professional trainer.

We are looking forward to unveiling this amazing facility at our grand opening celebration once construction is completed! The current estimate for completion is Spring 2017.
