Family-Friendly Horse Facility in Walnut Creek, CA

Horse Facility in a Tranquil Setting

DeVito Equestrian Center is an inviting horse facility nestled in the scenic foothills of Mt. Diablo. Family owned and operated, we are a full care horse stable. Our uniquely tranquil setting is just five minutes from downtown Walnut Creek. The farm is a fun, safe environment for kids to grow and learn about horsemanship, and a nonjudgmental, non-competitive atmosphere for adults, both beginner and advanced. We live on the property and offer 24/7 care for your horse. We don’t just board your horse, we care for it.

Horse Boarding and Horseback Riding Lessons

DeVito Equestrian Center has been boarding horses and offering English Riding Lessons for nearly fifty years. The stable offers a variety of horse boarding options, including: box stalls, stalls with paddocks, and pasture boarding. Our riding school specializes in beginner through intermediate levels, and welcomes both children and adults. John Ducharme, our onsite trainer, accommodates intermediate through advanced riders and horses.
