Access to the Showgrounds

The gate is locked, so ensure you coordinate with your host for access to the grounds if you don't have a member gate key.

Where to Ride

The Santa Clara County Horsemen’s is located with easy access to several parks: Calero, San Vincente, Santa Theresa, Rancho Canada Del Oro Open Space, Sierra Azul Preserve, and Quicksilver.  

To ride out to Santa Theresa Park or San Vincente (approx 1/2 mile), you have to ride on the left shoulder easement along McKean Road from SCCHA and cross over one large ditch. You can, of course, trailer a short way as well.
