Ride Nipomo is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting equestrian interests in South San Luis Obispo County, located on the central coast in California. Nipomo itself is a small, but very old, historic ranchland country nestled at the foot of a mountain range. We include associates from all over the county who value the trails, the fun and the community building of this alliance. See you on the Central Coast Trails!

We work to maintain a healthy horse enthusiast community, preserve diminishing access to trails and keep upexisting riding trails. We actively seek the establishment and recognition of new trails as properties are developed and the area grows. An additonal goal is to ensure Nipomo continues to remain a horse "friendly" community while the personality of our community evolves with new developement. Constant meetings with Planning and Zoning, as well as local community groups are necessary to maintain good relationship and keep reminding them that we moved here to be in an area where we CAN ride our horses! Our Board is active with these groups and continue to follow development by attending many meetings, and encourage the continuance of our existance.

Each time a new development comes in, our officers make sure that horse access is considered. Not only that, but also many Board members and fellow associates get out and physically dig, shovel, rake, haul chips to build and maintain trails not only on the roadsides but also in the developments that have trails designed into their community. Many hours are donated annually and we are always looking for more eager trail lovers to help us! Work days and ride days are planned throughout the year - become a member or renew and check our newsletter for articles, updates and lots of riding information! Check out our Sponsors page for services of all kinds. Our trail work efforts meet with great success (see video below)! Join in the fun and reap the benefits as well when you become an associate!

Hikers, Bikers and Equestrians all enjoy trails. Let us work together to maintain, create, preserve and enjoy them!

From Our Associate and Webmaster Annie:

Try this amazing eco friendly alternative to toxic sprays for your control of flies and other nasty insects in your world. I tried it and WOW! I use it on all my pets. My horse will accept it no problem and even if I rub it on her nose. It kills pests and doesn't irritate. They even have a horse rescue project going! I just have to share this info with all of you! I am buying it by the gallon now and couldn't be more pleased. Use only the provided spayers, others will not work as well.
