Valenti Equestrian Club
Lovely Rancho Santa Fe facility
provides harmonious sanctuary.

Situated on close to 20 acres in the Rancho Santa Fe Covenant, the Valenti Equestrian Club offers a unique boarding and training facility for independent horse owners seeking a private and nurturing environment. Designed for horse lovers who seek professionally maintained facilities accompanied by caring staff and management, the grounds include access to the exclusive and picturesque Covenant equestrian trails, which are directly connected to the extensive Rancho Santa Fe horse trail network. They wind throughout the Ranch including the Rancho Santa Fe Country Club. The grounds also feature the Dave Cox Memorial Dressage ring and an expansive jumping arena with outdoor turn-outs and close proximity to the Del Mar racetrack.

The facility includes lush, mature landscaping in a tranquil setting with gated entry, 24-hour on-site staff, ample ingress and egress for trailers, professional dressage and jumping trainers, as well as carefully maintained stalls and tack rooms. The Club is renowned for its harmonious environment dedicated to the well being of both horses and their owners who subscribe to the philosophy of being good neighbors.

Owned by Irene Valenti, Founder and President of Valenti International, the Valenti Equestrian Club exemplifies her passion for helping others. As a successful relationship expert for over 20 years, she is emotionally committed to her business clients as well as the bond between animals and their owners. Valenti elaborates, "I admire the love and dedication that the horse owners demonstrate and I often experience the joy and tears that go along with taking care of their animals. It truly is a rewarding experience for me."

Through the Valenti Foundation, Valenti has rescued feral American Arabian horses and works directly with other non-profit organizations, such as Pegasus Rising. In 2012, the Valenti Foundation will host a series of special events at the Valenti Equestrian Club to benefit worthy causes and encourage camaraderie amongst its members. The first event of the new season will be a Horse and Owners Equestrian Fashion Show. Valenti will be announcing more details on this event in the weeks to come.

In addition to the Valenti Equestrian Club, Irene Valenti has also graciously opened her doors at the Valenti Estate for various fund raising events, weddings, private parties and for business organizations. Several fundraising events have been held on the grounds, including the Valenti Foundation's highly successful VALENTINO @ VALENTI Charity Event. This spectacular inaugural black tie gala was hosted to benefit abused, homeless and foster children in San Diego County and was held on April 12, 2008.
