Watch World-Class Equestrian Show Jumping
Spectators Are Always Welcome!
Welcome to the Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park in beautiful San Juan Capistrano! The park is open to the public to enjoy the open space and to ensure that San Juan Capistrano’s equine culture continues to flourish.
The park is home to many equestrian disciplines from the thrill of Western rodeos to the elegance and pageantry of English horse jumping. The park also provides low-cost innovative programs where young riders and their horses can perform to hone their equestrian skills.
The Ridland Group has managed the Riding Park since 1998 and has been instrumental in the development and growth of the Blenheim Equisports horse show competitions on an international level.
In 2000, Blenheim won the bid to host the US Olympic Trials in San Juan Capistrano. This was the first time the Trials were held on the West Coast. In 2004, they brought the Olympic Trials for a second time to the Riding Park, making them the first to hold two consecutive qualifying Olympic Equestrian Trials at the same location. No other equestrian management company in North America has staged more World Cup Finals than Blenheim Equisports.
This year, San Juan Capistrano is hosting the Longines FEI Jumping Nations Cup, a qualifier for the Olympics, and a first for the event being held on the West Coast. Teams from four countries (USA, Canada, Mexico, and Ireland) will compete for this prestigious event with the final competition on Mother’s Day, May 14, 2023.
In addition to its equestrian competitions, the Riding Park is a site for live musical performances, community events, or just spending a beautiful day on the expansive green fields and sharing a picnic lunch with your family and friends.
