We work to maintain a healthy horse enthusiast community, preserve diminishing access to trails and keep up existing 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 personel, as well as local community groups are necessary to maintain good relationships and keep reminding others that we moved here to be in an area where we can ride our horses! Our Board is active with these groups and continues to follow development closely.

Each time a new development comes in, our officers make sure that horse access is considered. Board members and Associates get out to community meetings, to trails to dig, shovel, rake and haul chips and to build and maintain trails, not only on the roadsides but also in the developments that have trails designed into their community.

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. Horse enthusiasts of all kinds enjoy Ride Nipomo's Alliance. Equestrian activities create a lifestyle which permeates our area in a healthy and colorful way.

Check our newsletter for articles, updates and lots of riding information! Check out our links 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! See you on the Central Coast Trails! Our Board is dedicated and strong. You don't need to own a horse to value our trail systems! Let's do this together!
