While south county has many equestrian centers, Harwood Farms horse boarding is right in Los Gatos and conveniently close to trails – and home!

Where is the Harwood Farms horse boarding?

Harwood Farms horse boarding is located at the corner of Harwood Road and Alerche Road in Los Gatos. (Alerche is a loop road, and this stable is at the upper one, further from Blossom Hill Road.)

This location is excellent for accessing the trails at Belgatos Park, which in turn lead to a network of trails: Heintz, Shannon Valley open space, and Santa Rosa open space.

It’s also a scenic residential area adjacent to the Belwood of Los Gatos, Alerche, and Harwood Hills areas in east Los Gatos.

The site enjoys pleasant views. It’s a low-traffic area and an enjoyable place to visit.

We do not have any direct, recent experience with Harwood Farms horse boarding. A couple of decades ago, under the previous ownership, my daughter benefitted from and loved horseback riding lessons there, so it has a very fond place in my heart from that experience.

The current owners, who live nearby, purchased the property in 2018. It’s a large parcel of land, nearly 2.2 acres (2.19), and we’ve been delighted to see that it remains equestrian land today.

Here’s a photograph that I took in 2007 of the valley view one winter morning that showcases the horse ranch in the foreground – such a pretty setting!
