Meet Our New Village Resident

Ready for the feel-good story of the week? The Equestrian Center just welcomed a rescued 12-year-old registered American miniature horse named Sebastian, or Sebby for short—and short, special and oh so sweet he is! 

Right now, shy little Sebby is becoming used to his surroundings and bonding with Equestrian Center Supervisor Laura Cobarruviaz and Stable Assistant Hailey Yocham. Once he is more confident and comfortable in his cozy digs, Laura and Hailey will work with him to become an equine outreach and education ambassador. According to Equestrian Center staff, he is becoming more relaxed and social by the day. 

Tour the Equestrian Center

Residents can visit Sebby and many other wonderful horses, and check out the stables, during an Equestrian Center tour.

To join a tour at the Equestrian Center, arrive at one of three scheduled tour times and sign in, and Equestrian Center staff will greet and prepare you for a fun and informative tour. No reservations are necessary, but close-toed shoes are required to interact with any horse. Every tour features a photo opportunity with a GRF-owned horse at the conclusion of the event.

Tour schedule:

  • Wednesday and Thursday: 2 p.m.
  • Friday, Saturday and Sunday: 12:30 and 2 p.m.

The Equestrian Center is located at 24312 El Toro Road.
