TRVEA Log - Read how Mary Johnson created art that reflects our unique lives in the Tijuana River Valley(The) Tijuana River Valley Equestrian Association (TRVEA) are fellow equestrians who formed a non-profit association in 1986 to promote and protect the horse and rider experience in this wonderful Tijuana River Valley. We’re individuals and families. We ride trail, dressage, western, jumper, endurance, and every other equestrian sport you can participate in. We are located on the US and Mexico border (la frontera!), just west of Interstate 5, and bounded by the Pacific Ocean. We have 4000 acres to ride in canopy forest, high mesas, estuary, riverbed, and miles of beach; agricultural paths, historical sites; city, county, state, and federal parkland.

TRVEA sponsors equestrian seminars, gymkhanas, parades, trail rides, bar-b-ques, clinics, and many fun activities centered on you and your horse. But some of the most important things TRVEA does are behind the scenes.

  • Provide charitable events and donations for children and families, especially where the equestrian life can be shared with others who are less fortunate.
  • Protect your trails from special interests who want the valley changed; we attend meetings of over 30 agencies, associations, departments, and federal, state, county, and city agendas to represent Tijuana River Valley equestrians. TRVEA works with County Parks, State Parks, and US Fish & Wildlife on important wildlife and park management activities.
  • Maintain miles of equestrian trails for your riding pleasures.
  • Assist equestrians during regional disasters and emergencies by providing information, and organizing shelter, hauling, and care by the Tijuana River Valley’s available resources for horses and animals who are in harm’s way.
