A haven for Arabian horses in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley
Named after Antheia, one of the Graces in Greek mythology, a goddess of
flowers, blossoms, gardens and human love and friendship, we are a small boutique Arabian horse breeding program located in the heart of the magnificent Santa Ynez Valley in California. Our farm is a peaceful, harmonious, flower filled paradise providing the most relaxing, tranquil, environment for the beautiful Arabian horses who call it home.
Our Arabian horses honor their desert heritage with their stunning type, fiery charisma, gentle dispositions and sound trainable minds. They are intelligent, kind, people loving companions of the very highest quality.
We have found that our horses prefer to live outside in their large, lush, green fields. They are much happier and healthier living together outside in natural herd groups with a mix of ages and we are fortunate to be able to accommodate this. They have plenty of room to run, stretch their legs and be horses. The stallions spend all day outside in their grass stallion paddocks and come in to the barn in the evening. Our beautifully designed barn is light and spacious with roomy stalls. Every horse can touch, see and smell its neighbors.
Our horses are broken to ride in their spare time. This provides both mental & physical stimulation and they thoroughly enjoy the human interaction and connection.
Our horses are our treasures, and they are loved and treated as the unique individuals they are, allowing for their personalities to shine and with their specific needs and wants catered to. Our tranquil oasis provides a luxurious, relaxing environment for our horses ensuring they live stress free, relaxed lives in peace and harmony with their surroundings.
Our animals are of sacred importance to us, so we were fortunate to be able to have our beautiful mare, Gloria Apal blessed at St. Mark's-in-the-Valley Episcopal Church in Los Olivos.
