October 2018 

This month brings a whole lot of exciting changes for NVHC, our owners and horses. As many know, NVHC had to close our doors in 2016 due to our property being sold.  This caused all kinds of changes for us and the horses, which have turned into positive changes that we are excited to share! Its been a hard road the last two years but we are excited to finally announce what we have been up to!  Napa Valley Horse Company is no longer located at Rapp Ranch and are in no way, shape or form associated with them. 

Angela moved to a beautiful town in the Sierras and started making her dream of being a horse breeder a reality - you can find information on her breeding facility, Studs, Mares, Foals and Sales on our A3 Quarter Horses page!  Angela has recently started accepting students for her riding program!  Watch for NVHC extended summer camps in Garden Valley, CA coming in Summer of 2019! 

Karen is located in Napa Valley offering Pony Parties and will be accepting a limited number of students for her lesson program beginning in November 2018.  You can find more information on booking lessons on the lessons page and/or Pony Parties on the Pony Parties page! 

We are excited to be working together again after two  long years and bringing together our Vision for customized Group and Corporate Events in the beautiful Napa Valley and our new location in Garden Valley as well for more in depth and extended experiences! Watch for ourONE OF A KIND, cannot be duplicatedTrail Rides starting back up in Spring 2019 with a variety of locations and types of rides for couples who want to keep it romantic or families looking for something unique to do!

Napa Valley Horse Company is dedicated to providing the youth in our community equine and horsemanship skills which can be used in everyday life.  Teaching responsibility, dedication, trust, work ethics and passion through natural horsemanship and creating an equine bond.


Napa Valley Horse Company uses primarily slaughter-bound horses for our rides, giving them an easy retirement as well as a second lease on life.  We focus primarily on middle aged ranch geldings that have extensive training as well as a great work ethic.  We retain mostly unadoptable horses for our program.  This is something very dear to our hearts.
