About High Meadow Ranch

High Meadow Ranch was founded in 1974 by Col. Pat Sullivan (USAF Ret.), who served at Vandenberg Air Force Base while working on the United States Space Shuttle program.

Col. Sullivan had been involved with equestrian competition ever since childhood – originally riding Thoroughbreds – but wanting to find a horse bred for more classical competition. After searching Europe and interviewing various clinicians, she chose the Trakehner as the most elegant of the warmbloods, having a more trainable temperment than the Thoroughbred.

High Meadow Ranch has as its mission the breeding, training, and advancing of sport horses in the classical tradition – including the arts of dressage, hunting, and jumping.

The ranch is located in the Santa Ynez Valley, about 130 miles north of Los Angeles on the central coast of California. Comprised of 37 acres of pasture, training facilities and residence, High Meadow Ranch provides a unique resource for breeding, residence, training, and care – in one of the most beautiful parts of the western United States. Shown at left are some views of the pastures, the residence, a Santa Ynez Valley sunset, and one of the training facilities.
