The Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park at San Juan Capistrano
A hub of equestrian and other competitive sports throughout Orange County and the newest addition to the City of San Juan Capistrano is the “Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park at San Juan Capistrano,” a popular venue for year-round equestrian competition and a host of community special events, including the annual Rancho Mission Viejo Rodeo.
Formerly part of the Rancho Mission Viejo landholdings, the 40-acre Riding Park is an essential component of a 2010 land purchase and annexation conducted by the City of San Juan Capistrano during its acquisition of 132 acres of Ranch land. The acquisition included the Riding Park, a recreational and agricultural area and the preservation of 42 acres of open space and creek habitat. This land purchase now establishes a new eastern gateway into the City, supports its commitment ot the equestrian lifestyle, greatly expands its open space portfolio, and forever connects the residents of San Juan Capistrano with the Rancho Mission Viejo family.
