Santa Ynez is located in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley just behind Santa Barbara. From Santa Barbara Intrepid Farms is about 30 minutes north off of Hwy 101. Santa Barbara, a resort and beach town is a wonderful place to soak up some sun, stroll the beaches, dine at fine restaurants and of course shop!

Santa Ynez itself has long been noted for is “perfect climate” elite horse ranches, breeding farms, restaurants, and shopping. It is home to the proud Vaquero Tradition. A tradition of California horsemanship that is still practiced and used on the working ranches today.  Don’t be surprised to hear the music of spurs and jingle bobs in restaurants and watering holes, as the California Cowboy is alive and thriving in the Santa Ynez Valley.

The Santa Ynez Valley is also home to many Vineyards and Winery’s.  Many tours and tastings are available.

Solvang has long been a destination for travelers. If you have time be sure to visit this quaint little town with a Scandinavian flair.

Here is a list of nearby Hotels for the clinic.  Please make your reservations as early as possible as Santa Ynez does have multiple events going on this clinic weekend.  There are more hotels in Goleta, Santa Barbara and Santa Maria.  All about 30 minutes away.
