The Cordillera Equestrian Center offers full and partial care boarding. Our commitment is to provide superior horse care that caters to all horses and riders. Full-care boarders are fed and given visual inspections three times a day by our experienced staff. Cordillera Public Safety takes the night shift, checking on the horses twice nightly. Partial-care boarders have full access to the facilities and trails, and their horses receive a daily turn-out and three feedings per day.

Riding Lessons

There is great value in forming a solid foundation for both horse and rider. Becoming a proficient rider improves confidence and physical and mental fitness atop a horse. Highly qualified, independent trainers are approved to give lessons at the facility. Training is available in multiple disciplines including hunter, jumper, dressage, reining, western pleasure, trail riding, English and groundwork.  


Well-trained staff members are also available for grooming, bathing, tacking, lunging and exercising of horses.  

Mission Statement

The Cordillera Equestrian Center exists to provide an outstanding amenity for all Cordillera property owners. The Cordillera Equestrian Center will maintain a safe, healthy and enjoyable environment for all who use the facility. The Cordillera Equestrian Center will generate sufficient income to offset all direct costs.
