A Horse Park for Everyone ~ Horse not required to enjoy
It is exciting to develop a place where
riders of all disciplines from throughout our area can get
information and read features on that important part of our
lives - horses! Major news is that development of the Horse
Park continues and you can be part of this exciting project!
Conveniently located, 1172 Cape George Road in Port Townsend, the heart of Jefferson County on the Olympic Peninsula, the Horse Park enables access to equestrian sports for children and adults who wouldn't otherwise be able to ride. It will also be a public park that is also open to bicyclists, dog-walkers, & hikers.
With several work parties under our belt the horse park is looking wonderful - big changes! Come and check it out, ride the trails that have had some fantastic grooming and maintenance. It's a lovely ride.
We now wait for our revised CUP (Conditional Use Permit) to be reviewed and approved. Once we have that in hand we will be able to much more easily be on the property, have fundraisers, work parties, etc. We are doing our best to push along the process, but it requires money to pay the permitting fees and associated costs that were involved in preparation of the CUP and now the processing. Please join or renew your membership, every single penny counts, every single membership helps!
Thank you Blue Moose Cafe for your very generous donation of time, delicious food and graciousness!! The October 24th fundraiser was a huge success - it appeared everyone had a fun time enjoying a delicious meal while conversing with old friends, meeting new ones and having an opportunity to hear from the Board Members regarding the status of the horse park. A catalogue of Phase One items and pricing for the horse park was provided - huge thanks to Nancy McDaniel for suggesting it, compiling it and printing - all as a donation to JEA. Information regarding the date of our January Annual meeting is forthcoming.
If you have not been getting our eblasts (monthly) - please contact us, we may not have your correct email information. All the board members and their contact information is on the Who to Contact page, or you can use the Send Us a Message page. Thank you - hope to see you soon!

Who will Benefit?
Equestrian and non-equestrian people alike will all benefit if the vision for the Horse Park is realized. The local community and beyond will enjoy a conveniently located, high quality, multi-use equestrian facility for recreation, training and competition. Charity groups will benefit from a choice location for their events and programs, and residents of Jefferson County and the Olympic Peninsula will take pleasure in the magnificent beauty of the land and in the knowledge that it is well cared for and preserved for equestrian use.
Dedicated to building a world-class horse park on
the Olympic Peninsula - a legacy for generations to come
