Summit Valley Horse Center

Ranch Location

Where we are

Home for the Summit Valley Horse Center (SVHC) is the former Hillyard Ranch property, 35405 Highway 9. Fifteen minutes from the heart of Silverthorne, this location allows us to provide programs on horse care, whilst training rescue horses to be more adoptable.

The Ranch

The property provides a landscape rich with opportunity for SVHC: two existing barns, 80 acres of riverfront grazing, several smaller fenced paddocks, loafing sheds, eight private stalls, plus a tack room and office space.

We are still developing and improving the property and have ongoing plans for an expanded obstacle/ desensitization course for the horses, a riding trail, a new riding arena, more training spaces, the revitalization of the irrigation system, improvements to the barns, more secure fencing for the paddocks and more. In 2023 we made substantial improvements to arena fencing, the mini and pony runs and a considerable amount of repainting of woodwork.

 Summit Valley Horse Center depends on our amazing and generous volunteers, and we really appreciate your help in improving the site.
