The Santa Ynez Valley Arabian Horse Association originally began as an Arabian Breeders club over 30 years ago. It was formed to bring together people interested in advancing and promoting the Arabian and Half-Arabian horse. It has since evolved into an AHA Region 2 affiliated association that host new and exciting events such as The Arabian Foal Festival, The Santa Ynez Futurity and The Arabian Breeders Celebration tours. Regional and National Championship Competitive Trail rides, a variety of general meetings, and a membership organization for people who show, race, breed, or pleasure ride their Arabian & Half Arabian horses.
To our visitors, please use the website to find or breed your dream horse, join our club, or plan a trip to the Santa Ynez Valley. Internationally acclaimed Arabian breeding farms and nationally accomplished trainers proudly call the Santa Ynez Valley their home. In fact, we believe there are more Arabians per square mile here in the Santa Ynez Valley than anywhere else in the United States. Whether you are just beginning your endeavor into the world of Arabian horses, or are a lifer, please take the time to contact some of the Arabian horse owners in the Santa Ynez Valley. You will find people who are excited to share their stories and experiences.
To our members, this website is provided as a tool for you to use. Please let the world know about your Arabians! We could not have created this site without you – thank you for your support.
