Part of the historic Cozzolino Farms,
MADONNA CREEK RANCH
offers a unique opportunity to enjoy your horse
on an authentic working ranch environment.
A private 12-horse full-care facility conveniently located just minutes from Interstate 280 and only two miles East of downtown Half Moon Bay, we offer large 20' x 24' mud-free pipe paddocks with walk-in shelters, extensive field turnouts, 2 arenas and access to almost 600 acres of riding trails.
Whether riding alongside our fields of hay, on the Ranch roads or on our extensive hilltop trails
that afford unparalleled views overlooking Half Moon Bay and the Pacific Ocean,
you'll enjoy the presence of the natural world in a truly peaceful setting.
Madonna Creek Ranch abuts hundreds of acres of open-space and conservation lands which
provides for an abundance of wildlife.
At our ranch we are especially proud to be able to offer a year-round consistent supply of
our own hay grown right on Cozzolino Farms.
You won't have to worry about your horse developing colic due to a changing feed supply with us.
Our specialty blend of Beardless Wheat, Barley, Oats mix and Orchard grasses feeds so well, that most horses don't even need additional supplementation to maintain a healthy top line.
We haven't met a horse yet that didn't love this sweet blend of hay.
As it is grown in the salty air only two miles from the Ocean on rich prime agricultural soil,
its flavor and nutritional content is exceptional.
Board includes 2 x daily feeding of generous portions.
Another valuable service we provide is our extended turnout program.
Horses on turnout get to enjoy the benefits of grazing and socializing with other
compatible horses in large field turnouts.
We guarantee an hour per day per horse, but try to combine compatible horses for
herd consistency and to maximize turnout time.
Our manure management practices must abide by strict conservation measures, and therefore we have all horse manure removed
from the premises. We clean the run-in paddocks 1 x daily and
our goal is a clean and well-maintained stable environment.
We have a large tack room with ample space for tack trunks and horse paraphernalia and
a separate area for feed storage and grain.
Our lighted arena and stables area means that you can enjoy your horse in the after hours of a work day,
and in the shorter daylight days of the winter months.
We also have extended visiting hours to accommodate your needs.
Our well-thought through stable and ranch management guidelines ensure the safety of both you and your horse. Our goal is that
everyone experience a sense of well-being and happiness while at our facility.
To that end we carefully interview and select our boarders.
Based on past experience, we have found that this screening approach ensures for a enduring
positive stables environment for both people and the horses in our care.
As a boarder at our facility you and your family will enjoy the many seasonal Cozzolino Farms experiences including the growing
and harvesting of our hay, pumpkins, flowers and Christmas trees.
Our "4-C's Pumpkin Patch" is one of the oldest pumpkin patches in the Bay Area! And during the holiday season, you can also purchase
your Christmas tree grown right here on our farm.
