The summer home for the Summit Valley Horse Center (SVHC) is the former Hillyard Ranch property, 35405 Highway 9, starting April 15th of 2021! Fifteen minutes from the heart of Silverthorne, this location allows us to provide leadership programs, emotional awareness programs for children and adults, as well as foster care and rehabilitation for rescued horses to help them get adopted.
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 obstacle/ desensitization course for the horses, 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. Summit Valley Horse Center depends on our amazing and generous volunteers, and we would really appreciate your help in improving the site.
Calling all Volunteers!
If you can come and help, even for an hour, please sign up on our calendar and help us improve the Ranch for the benefit of both horses and humans.
Your support through membership is vital to our mission's success, and we would greatly appreciate your purchasing a 2022 SVHC Membership, which provides many exciting experiences and opportunities which are not available to non-members at the ranch. In addition to the annual benefits you receive, we are also encouraging your early commitment to help us fund upgrades to the new facilities and start-up expenses.
For all those who love horses and understand the benefits horses bring to our world, whether you want to be an active participant or an armchair enthusiast and supporter, please consider a membership for yourself or a friend/family member to allow us to continue this vital work in our community.
Here we go!
