running horse

Far away the best ride...


Situated on nearly 50 acres, Close By Ranch sits in the gorgeous rolling hills of San Luis Obispo County, California. Surrounded by miles of open land and wineries we’re Close By the town of San Miguel, about 10 miles from the Mid State Fairgrounds in Paso Robles. This beautiful setting makes a peaceful atmosphere that enhances your horse experience every time you visit the ranch.


Whatever your discipline or show level, you’ll enjoy exploring the many trails around Close By Ranch and riding in the covered or outside arenas. Just as WE ENJOY OUR HORSES, we want you to ENJOY YOURS. We have many family fun events on the ranch, shows, BBQ's and a Saturday/Sunday morning riding club.


Come join us – and bring your family.


Good ride. Good horses. Good fun.
