About The Owner

At Olivewood Acres, my personal journey and passion for horses converge. Raised in Harbison Canyon and influenced by the equine elegance from classic movies, my connection to these majestic creatures began early. The scent of hay and earth was part of my daily drive, while horse-riding through the fire roads of Harbison Canyon to Alpine was my childhood adventure.

This ranch, a labor of love, was a diamond in the rough when I first set eyes on it. I’ve since devoted myself to its revival, focusing on a vision where retired horses can live out their days in peace and comfort. Here, I’m not just maintaining a property; I’m honoring a legacy and crafting a retreat where retired & layup horses looking for rest and relaxation find a lifestyle that befits their grace and history.
