Our Facility

Welcome to Elvenstar Orange County, located at Huntington Central Park Equestrian Center in beautiful Huntington Beach, CA. Our high standards of training, instruction, and care make Elvenstar Orange County one of the leading training and teaching programs in the country.

Elvenstar is more than just a place to learn to ride, more than a place to train, we are an extended family of students, trainers, and instructors. We offer a multi-faceted training program for the first time rider to the seasoned show competitor seeking advanced training and all levels in between. We pride ourselves on meeting the need of each individual horse and rider with our prestigious nationally renowned program.

The success of Elvenstar is not measured in the many thousands of trophies, medals, ribbons, and awards won, but in the ever-increasing capabilities of Elvenstar students.

Our riders are distinguished by their high level of riding skills, sportsmanship, and in the heat of competition, the quality of Elvenstar students is always evident. They are determined to win, but never at the expense of their horse and will congratulate an opponent as readily as they will console a friend, always aware of the responsibility of representing themselves and their community.

On Success

The success of Elvenstar is not measured in the many thousands of trophies, medals, ribbons, and awards won, but in the ever-increasing capabilities of Elvenstar students.
