Horses LOVE Morning Sun Ranch (and you will, too)!
Morning Sun Ranch is located on 30 acres in one of the most beautiful locations in the Aptos Hills. In addition to full-care horse boarding, we offer lessons, leasing, training and sales. We also have a full tractor service, specializing in excavating, grading and installation of water systems all throughout Santa Cruz County.
Morning Sun Ranch is our family home, as 
well as our business. We continually strive  
to make it a comfortable, safe and welcoming  
haven for our animals, clients and guests.
