About the Horse Heritage Conservancy
The Horse Heritage Conservancy (HHC) was created in 2016 by the Twin Oaks Valley Equestrian Association, a community group of caring individuals who are committed to our equestrian heritage and the rural beauty of San Diego County’s agricultural regions. HHC is an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) organization operating within the Twin Oaks Valley region of North San Diego County, in beautiful Southern California.
What We Do
The HHC is committed to raising awareness, funds and conservation opportunities to help promote the equestrian lifestyle. With our parent organization, TOVEA, HHC hosts a variety of educational events throughout the year with the goal of introducing our communities to the beauty of horses.
From our Common Ground Clinic, held in the spring at the Walnut Grove Park in San Marcos, to our Horse Heritage Festival/Ride & Stride event, held in the fall of each year to generate funds for the regional trails systems and Walnut Grove Horse Park facilities, the HHC provides opportunities to expose our neighbors to these amazing animals while advocating for a rural community where horses and horse owners can thrive.
Why We Do It
We love horses, and we are eager to share that love with the community while advocating for the open and recreational space, compatible zoning, and safe infrastructure to make horse keeping a cherished part of our region for generations to come.
The Horse Heritage Conservancy's purpose is threefold:
Equine education and advocacy
Development and maintenance of the local Walnut Grove Horse Park and surrounding trail systems
Development of community partnerships
How You Can Help
Whether you’re a horse enthusiast, or simply enjoy living in a community filled with open spaces and pastures, we need your help! Through your donations and time we can make great things happen in Twin Oaks Valley and the rural regions of San Diego County to help preserve these valuable resources.
