Tahoe Donner Equestrian Center is Closed – Come Back Next Year

Equestrian operations have been deferred during the anticipated construction of the Cross Country Ski Center. This is a temporary situation and we plan to be fully operational again in June of 2015, conditions permitting.

BOARDING | Boarding will continue to be available to Tahoe Donner homeowners within the existing Equestrian Center campus.

Call 530-587-9470 for additional information, or email equestrian@tahoedonner.com.

Come explore the Sierra Nevada mountains by horseback. View forests and high mountain meadows filled with wildflowers. Catch a glimpse of the local wildlife; a deer with her young, a bear hunting for grubs or a hawk circling in the sky.

Bring your toddler out for a pony ride. Join us at a Saturday night BBQ and indulge in a customized gourmet burger while you watch the kids play dress up, roast marshmallows and take a swing at the piñata.
