Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society presents ‘Boots, Bridles and Barns’ tour


The Rancho Santa Fe Historical Society transformed its annual fundraising summer home tour into a tour of five “fine equine estates.”

The Boots, Bridles and Barns tour was held July 11. The equine facilities on the tour are some of the “most upscale in the nation and are home to pleasure, hunter/jumper and dressage horses.”

Designated buses took tour guests to each barn, where volunteer docents served as guides and gave the story of each facility.

A “Hoedown” party (photos on this page) was held after the tour at the park in front of The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe, which featured food, drink, live music, dancing and a live and silent auction.
