American Canyon Training Center proudly provides boarding, care and development opportunities for a diverse community of horses and their people, ranging from those starting under or in the saddle through recreational, competive and rehabilitating teams to retired horses and riders.  We are located just 1 mile off Interstate 80 (Exit 36) at the junction of Napa and Solano Counties.  You can be here in 20 – 45 minutes from most of the Bay Area.
