The original ranch was established in the mid
1800’s as a dairy farm and cheese factory supporting
the Sierra Foothill Gold Rush. The route through the
ranch and across the Cosumnes River was so popular
it often took two hours to get in the line of wagons
and stagecoaches headed toward the gold fields. The
last dairy barn was built on the property in 1929
and remodeled into a horse barn in 1982.
Since then, the “gold” has been of the equine sports variety. Today the
ranch is divided into two operations, half
consisting of the Murieta Equestrian Center (www.murietaequestriancenter.com),
hosting many world class equestrian events,
including the El Rancho Futurity and Foothill Fiesta
as well as the El Rancho Spring Classic. The other
half is dedicated to the raising and training of
champion cutting horses.
Offering a fine selection of Cutting
Horses for sale and Cutting prospects.
