Welcome to Arroyo Arabians

Arroyo Arabians specializes in training Arabian and Half Arabian performance horses in the English, Hunter, Western and Equitation divisions, while preparing their amateur riders for Class A, Regional, and National level competitions. We have a small, boutique, friendly barn of life long horse people who take time with each individual and horse. The riding lessons with trainer, Kelly Elm, are productive and positive for both horse and rider. Join our successful Amateur program, and bring the joy and passion and fun back to riding and showing horses. We invite you to bring your horse for a free lesson, with no commitment, to see if Arroyo Arabians is the place for you.

Where we are

Arroyo Arabians is located in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, in Wine Country on the Central Coast of California, just 30 minutes from Santa Barbara. Santa Ynez Valley has long been known as the Valley of the Arabian Horse, due to the number of prominent Arabian Horse Farms in this small valley. We would love to talk with you about your goals for your horse and your involvement in the rewarding lifestyle of the Arabian Horse world. Visitors are always welcome.

We are also a proud member of the Santa Ynez Valley Arabian Horse Association.
