Welcome To Our Site
Rancho Del Sueño is located in eastern Madera County. The ranch is near the junction of Highway 41 and Road 145, and is about equal distance of 16 miles from either of the cities, Fresno or Madera. Rancho Del Sueño is above the San Joaquin Valley floor in rolling Blue Oak countryside and in the center of California’s Sierra recreational areas. Sequoia, King’s Canyon and Yosemite National Park as well as Millerton Lake, Bass Lake, Shaver Lake and the skiing facility at Dodge Ridge are all within an hour drive from the ranch.
This facility is a 40 acre preservation center for the rare Wilbur-Cruce line of the Colonial Spanish Mission Horse. These horses are direct descendants of the horses Spain brought to the New World and are an integral part of southwest's early history. The foundation stock of our herd originated from Father Kino’s Mission Dolores in Sonora, Mexico and were brought up to the Pimería Alta, the area made up of Southern AZ and Northern Sonora, Mexico.
In addition, Rancho Del Sueño offers equine assisted learning (EAL) and wellness programs for adults, youth, veterans and people with special needs.
