Missouri Fox Trotter Mare for Lease in Rancho Santa Fe, CA
I am looking for a riding partner for my 14 year old Palomino Missouri Fox Trotter. She is a fantastic horse without any bad habits. She goes anywhere, trailers with out a fuss and a great mover. She would be available to ride three or four times a week now and every day during the summer. You must be an experienced kind rider that knows what they are doing. I am boarding her in Olivenhain near the trails. You must be available most of the time in the summer, be a responsible person with good references. I treat my horses with love and kindness and I will not tolerate anything less. I also have a lightweight fiberglass trailer that you might be able to use. Lease amount is 1/2 actual cost or about $550 per month.
About Rancho Santa Fe, CA
In 1841, Rancho San Dieguito, as it was originally named, was a Mexican land grant of 8,824 acres (35.71 km 2) from Governor Pío Pico of Alta California to Juan Maria Osuna, the first alcalde (mayor) of the Pueblo of San Diego. In 1906, the Santa Fe Railway, a subsidiary of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway, purchased the entire land grant to plant a Blue gum eucalyptus ( Eucalyptus globulus) tree plantation for use as railroad ties, but the wood proved too soft to hold railroad spikes. The railroad then formed the Santa Fe Land Improvement Company to develop a planned community of country estates, and 6,200 acres developed from the original Rancho San Dieguito land grant were renamed "Rancho Santa Fe" in 1922. [ citation needed ] In 1921, architect Lilian Rice, working under Requa and Jackson, was chosen to develop the community's master plan. Rice worked through to 1927, designing, supervising, and constructing the village center, as well as several homes.
