Sandia Creek Ranch Auxiliary Foundation (SCRAF) is nestled amongst the oaks of Fallbrook, CA. It is here where Thoroughbreds enjoy getting to be a horse and learn new skills as they make their transition from the track.

SCRAF has certified staff on site 24/7 providing its horses with the utmost care and watchful eyes around the clock.

On the ranch, each horse is treated as an individual and developed with compassion and patience for the job that it is best suited for and enjoys.

SCRAF restarts each horse from the ground so there is a clear understanding of what is being asked, allowing the horse to excel. Once a horse is ready to find a new home, SCRAF works hard to find the perfect match. Some horses become family horses while others become upper-level sport horses. The ranch is known for being able to help last-chance horses find their way, as well as develop superstars to Grand Prix show jumping and the FEI levels of eventing.

Sandia Creek Ranch has so much to offer: from endless trails and large pastures to an Outdoor Family Education Center that teaches respect for nature, safety, and understanding around horses. It also offers classes developing standards for good horse management through United States Pony Club and implements alternative forms of horse care.

SCRAF Thoroughbreds benefit from experiencing so many kind and focused souls while also playing a huge part in programs offered to youth and to military.
