Get Directions

Located just north of Santa Cruz, the SCCHA Showgrounds on Graham Hill Road  has ample parking for dozens of horse trailers and LQ’s.

The Showgrounds is approximately 20 acres,  with 2 competition arenas, 2 round pens, large campground, separate day-use parking, and a spacious clubhouse overlooking the grounds.

SCCHA has recently added two new features:  Obstacle Trail Course & Trotting Tracks.  Members and guests can enjoy bridges, gates, tires, logs, trenches, plus a covered wagon & cowboy curtain on the Trail Course.  The Trotting Tracks include a very large figure-8 as well as an oval, allowing riders to circle the trail course on a sanded track with room for many horses.

SCCHA’s campground offers 45 pipe-panel corrals, plenty of shade, plus unlimited access to trails in Henry Cowell State Park. Bathrooms and showers are located nearby at the Clubhouse.

The Clubhouse has a full kitchen as well as large seating areas both inside and outside.  An outdoor kitchen is also available next to the group picnic area.
