May 18, 2024 – San Juan Capistrano, CA – As of May 18, 2024, the Orange County Coastkeeper and The Ridland Group have agreed in principle to a plan that will protect the San Juan Creek while allowing Blenheim EquiSports to hold its equestrian events this season at the Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park in San Juan Capistrano, CA.

“We are profoundly grateful to Coastkeeper for their hard work and cooperative efforts to assure the long-term future of equestrian events at the Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park under the strictest of environmental protocols,” said Robert Ridland, President of The Ridland Group. “This agreement confirms not only that the equestrian competitions will continue in 2024 but that all the other various community and charity events will as well. Most importantly, this agreement assures that all equestrian activities at the Riding Park will operate in a manner that provides the highest degree of protection to the environment and the surrounding watershed.”

The parties have been in longstanding collaboration in order to come up with a plan to protect the San Juan Creek and have settled on a clear course of action that will protect water quality while continuing equestrian operations at The Riding Park. The Ridland Group is committed to upholding Coastkeeper’s goal of improving local water quality to protect the people and wildlife of the San Juan Creek Watershed.
