No hour of life is wasted that is spent in the saddle – Winston Churchill

Our mission is to……….

  • Protect the “horse country” atmosphere of the Temecula Valley, particularly the Valle de los Caballos and Wine Country areas

  • Work with local governments (city, county, state) to designate and maintain a network of local and arterial trails (i.e., local “loops” as well as trails linking to major cross-county networks)

  • Facilitate networking among local horse lovers so our beautiful trails and horse-keeping areas can be enjoyed together

  • Promote the use of our trails as the best way to maintain them!

  • Be the voice of horse lovers in the Temecula Valley

About us………..
Rancho California Horsemen's Association was founded in 1969 as a membership based group of equestrians and horse lovers in the Temecula Valley. We are dedicated to preserving and enjoying trails in our area.

Our goals are:

  1. To support TVRL's (Temecula Valley Rural Lifestyle) work with the County of Riverside to create a network of trails backed by legal easements so we can ride throughout the Valle de los Caballos, Wine Country, and out to Vail Lake, Lake Skinner and Diamond Valley Lake;

  2. have as many of these as possible be offroad trails; 

  3. plan group rides and socials to encourage more people to join and participate in RCHA; and
  4. promote rural/equestrian lifestyle through communication with local winery owners to frequent their facilities and hitching posts for monthly rides and socials.

We appreciate all of the volunteer hours our members provide, but we also need funds for trail maintenance, hitching rails and trail markers! Please consider donating to preserve the riding trails in the Temecula Valley.
