Between Roseville and Auburn, Hunterville is located in the beautiful Loomis Basin, just 3 miles off Interstate 80 to the north.

Quality over quantity was always the goal, and with that philosophy, many champion horses and riders have been produced, including some of California's most successful trainers.
