Oak Knoll Equestrian Center is located just outside of Sacramento, California. Our equine facility features a multitude of options: from the trainers to boarding, you have the ability to customize your horse’s experience!

Oak Knoll Equestrian was always a dream. The Schackners have always wanted to run a fantastic horse property and truly encourage a friendly environment. And that they did! OKEC is all about fun, learning, and the best care for your horse. Not only do we have countless boarding options, we also have turnout, top of the line footing, Purina grain programs, and quality hay. Your horse will be pampered here! 


“My horse is happier than ever. Layla, Kim, and everyone at the barn all work so hard to make sure that Raven is well taken care of! She gets daily turnout, fed exceptional hay and grain, and loves the huge arena. My favorite part is the feeling of home. Everyone at the barn works together to make sure our horses are pampered while we have way too much fun. I have too many nice things to say about this place – it’s simply the best!!” -Kaitlyn


Oak Knoll is the home of the happy horse — and plentiful boarding options! Aside from 3 meals a day, your horse will also be treated to daily stall cleaning, turnouts, blanketing, grain services, and much more. Read below to learn more about what our facility offers. Our included services are part of our boarding options at no additional charge. We also offer extras for a small fee. While we want your horse to be happy and healthy, we also want you have feel comfortable and fun here. If you have any questions, please let us know. We take pride in OKEC and want you to feel the same!
