Wallen West Farms Hosts Holiday Open House

On the weekend of December 11-12, Robb and Betsy Wallen will host an open house welcoming everyone to their beautiful new training facility overlooking the wine country of Temecula Valley in California.

The 10 acre equestrian facility includes a 4000 square foot home with plenty of room for guests and clients, and an organic Ruby Red grapefruit orchard. The state of the art, 26 stall barn is fully insulated and features a vaulted ceiling lounge which opens to a large covered patio overlooking a 100 x 200 foot arena. Around the perimeter of the property there is a track that Robb designed for jogging horses. The property also features a large bull pen, paddocks and access to trails.

Robb is the fourth generation horsemen. His parents Dick and Marilyn Wallen owned and operated a 52 stall training barn and one of the largest riding schools in the Midwest where he and his siblings had the opportunity to work with many show breeds. Since 1987, Robb has operated his own training business, working and exhibiting Saddlebreds, Morgans, and National Show Horses to consistent Regional and National titles for the past 17 years.

The open house will feature BBQ, entertainment, door prizes, vendors, special presentations, wine tasting and lots of fun! For more information please contact Robb and Betsy at (951) 491-0626. RSVP by December 1. Admission is unwrapped toy to be donated to a local charity.
