Welcome to Santa Barbara Stables!

"Everyone deserves a little slice of heaven..even you and your horse!"

Hilltop is indeed horse heaven! Located on a 350-acre ranch, just 10 minutes from Montecito, it is the home of Santa Barbara Stables and trainer, Rebecca Atwater.


Join us to ride in paradise at a premier West Coast facility overlooking the ocean. Beautiful stalls, daily turnouts in large grass pastures, 3 riding arenas with top-quality footing, a European walker, polo field, miles of trails, retirement pasture and top-level training. At Santa Barbara Stables, we happily tailor our training program to care for all your equine needs. It doesn’t get any better, or any more fun, than this.
