Peter Weber Equestrian Center Rededicated 

Peter Weber Equestrian Center

The Portuguese Bend Horse show was last weekend and many children of Palos Verdes homes owners are once again asking their parents to let them take riding lessons.  Lucky for us the City of Rolling Hills Estates was originally incorporated in order to help preserve its rural environment and equestrian lifestyle.

The city operated public riding rings for years at the Peter Weber Equestrian Center until they turned operations over in a 2011 concession agreement to Gil & Doreen Houle.  At that time, the City was having trouble filling its stalls at the Center.  This week, however, they are rededicating the Peter Weber Equestrian Center and most of 148 stalls are rented.  The $2.1 million renovation project brought a state of the art barn, new drainage systems, and revamped riding arenas.  The two revamped riding arenas have been one of the biggest draws since they opened in July as they are filled with footing made of synthetic pebbles that save water and provides shock absorption.  They have also added a new hay storage structure, lockers, wash racks, a roadway and sidewalk.  The 24 stall barn seems to the be the new highlight – it stays cool and has a water mist system that sprays a fly deterrent mist from the ceiling.

In 2011, under the new operators they expanded their horse rides & training programs to incorporate a petting zoo, birthday party area, pony rides and hay rides.  Currently, they are offering the Winter Pony Camp After School Program beginning October 6, 2015, which is a “ride and learn,” basic horsemanship and how to care for ranch animals.  The program is for ages 3 and up and continues through February 2016.   To register or for more information please go to the website at, or call Chantal Allyn at 310-365-7343.

The Peter Weber Equestrian Center is located at 26401 Crenshaw Boulevard, Rolling Hills Estates.
