‘Ohana is the Hawaiian word that means "family". ‘Ohana Farms is owned, operated, and supported by our family. It is our little piece of paradise in beautiful Corralitos, a peaceful and sunny spot in the foothills of Santa Cruz County, California.
‘Ohana Farms is many things: an equestrian facility, an organic apple farm, and a gathering place for friends and family. Each one is important to us.
We believe that our students should enjoy their horses each day and also progress towards their personal goals. We offer fun and well-rounded instruction using natural techniques as well as providing a classical dressage education that is specialized for the needs of each horse and rider pair. Students develop confidence as they understand and practice techniques that promote safety, thoughtful communication, balance, strength, and beauty both on the ground and in the saddle.
We are proud to see our students develop better seat and position, further their horsemanship skills, begin or continue to expand their classical dressage education, and excel in their dressage showing careers.
We believe that farming should provide a healthy source of food that nourishes the people that produce it, the people that eat it, and the land and community that supports and provides it.
