Rancho Verano was first established in 1963 in Escondido, California where our family
first became involved with horses.
In 1980 I told my father I would like a Draft Horse for Christmas.
At that time there was not a lot of Draft Horses in the area, but we found a man in Vista who raised Clydesdales.
purchased a six month old Filly named Chica and she ended up giving us six colts that helped start our carriage and hay ride
company in 1993.
Our Clydesdales have been seen on Home and Family, Blind Date and have been featured
in many magazines and newspapers.One of Chica's colts, Cisco, was chosen to be on the 2002 Los Angeles County Fair pin. Cisco
has shown in Colorado, California and Utah and has taken many Blues along with lots of ribbons. We are very proud to have
such wonderful horses.
Chica is retired now and out to pasture with another Clydesdale named Delight who
has had her share of of making special memories for brides and audiences.
We also have a team of draft
mules who pull their weight and then some and have been a feature at the Del Mar Fair. They weigh about 1400 lbs. each. Rancho
Verano's services are available for many events including weddings, birthday parties, parades, rodeos, reenactments, festivals
and much more!
We also do educational programs about horses and other farm animals. Please call us at
