Horses in California

The economic impact of the California horse industry

It’s estimated that California’s horse industry contributes around $7 billion to the state economy. Racing is a major contributor at $2.5 billion. It’s also estimated that there are over 54,000 jobs in this sector. Taking into account the support industry, feed suppliers, and so on, this number may be incremented by 130,000 people. In total, over 300,000 Californians are actively engaged through horse ownership, providing services, and employment.

The history of horses in California

California’s horse history is as diverse as its landscapes. Spanish heritage has contributed greatly to the equestrian tradition known as the California Vaquero School. Spanish settlers in California brought with them a style of riding that was rooted in Baroque horsemanship and cattle management. The Vaquero tradition is both elegant and practical. In California, this style of riding was refined further. Their fast, agile horses had historically been ideal as war horses as well as stock horses. They were light on the bridle and tuned in to the invisible cues of their riders. Drawing on this tradition, the National Reined Cow Horse Association, originally the California Reined Cow Horse Association, was set up in 1949. Its aim was to maintain California’s rapidly disappearing reining heritage. As the state’s urban areas grew in the nineteenth century, work horses were a vital part of their development. Sacramento became famous as the terminus of the legendary Pony Express. By 1900, 8,065 horses were part of the economy of Los Angeles. Work horses logged California’s forests, tilled the land, and worked in the vineyards. Horse racing added to the equestrian activities in the state. Then, horses found a new role – as stars of the silver screen in Hollywood.

Horse associations in California

The state is home to numerous breed associations as diverse as the California Gypsy Horse Association and Baroque horse organizations. California State Polytechnic University is on the site of W.K. Kellogg’s Arabian horse farm. It includes the world’s biggest library devoted to the Arabian horse, the W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Library (WKKAHL). The California Professional Horsemen's Association provides support for the state’s many professional equestrians.

Disciplines in California

All equestrian disciplines are represented in this magnificent state, from demanding mountain endurance riding in the Tevis Cup to dressage in Los Angeles. Western traditions are popular, and so are elegant harness traditions, racing, and show jumping. Visitors and residents also enjoy riding holidays, including overnight camping.

Most famous horses in California

California is home to the world’s biggest movie industry, and so it’s not surprising that some of this state’s most famous horses are actors. The palomino Golden Cloud (1934-1965) is better known as Trigger, the talented partner of the cowboy, Roy Rogers. Trigger had Thoroughbred ancestry and had worked as a racehorse before becoming a movie star. The amazing Seabiscuit (1933-1947) was one of the world’s most successful racehorses. He is remembered for his famous match against War Admiral in 1938. Quarter Horse Doc Bar (1956-1992) became one of the most influential sires in the National Cutting Horse Association. His contribution was recognized by induction into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame. Red Chief R, part Morgan and part Arabian, won the Tevis Cup in 1966 and again the following year. California Chrome is probably the state’s most celebrated racehorse, returning from injury to win the Dubai Cup. California’s various herds of wild horses are also a draw for tourists.
