Maureen McDermut: Hope Ranch: Santa Barbara’s Equestrian Playground

Hope Ranch, home to 700 residents in an unincorporated suburb of Santa Barbara, California, is a dream come true for equestrian enthusiast. Its 2,000 acres are home to more than 30 miles of equine trails, which are managed by the Hope Ranch Riding & Trails Association. The association is open to all members of the Hope Ranch community.
