Welcome to SJCEC
We serve to protect and promote the interests of those who value equine ownership and activities as important aspects of our quality of life. We need your interest, your help and your membership to accomplish these goals. If you share these objectives - of preserving an equestrian tradition and lifestyle - please join today. You need not live in San Juan to become a member, just a love of the equestrian lifestyle. Some of our accomplishments on behalf of the equestrian community over the past few years are listed below.

The run for the roses won't be the only competition going on at the Regency Theater. Start getting your hats ready for the highly competitive hat contest, with prizes donated by American Horse Products. It was a close race, but Hidalgo won by a nose and will be shown after the the Derby.
Come and see the thrills, and hopefully no spills, at the Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park on April 10, 11 and 12. There will be two Grand Prix classes where $75,000 will be awarded, plus a $10,000 Hunter Derby.
