Garrod Farms is home to one of the nation’s oldest continuously running vaulting programs, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2020. Innovator and family matriarch Jane Garrod brought the new equestrian sport here in the late 1960s. Today Garrod Farms graciously hosts the Mt. Eden Vaulting Club– home to a spectrum of vaulters, from Tiny Tots to World Vaulting Gold Medalists, and everything in between!

Whether MEVC students take a single Recreation vaulting class or end up as serious athletes who progress up the ladder to international competitive vaulting, our goal is the same– to create a safe, gratifying, and fun vaulting experience that they’ll remember for decades to come!

“The property here is amazing. Over 150 acres of vineyards and stables. The trail ride is amazing as well. The views over the entire valley and as far as San Francisco. Windy trails and areas where we could gallop with the horse make this one of the best hours you can spend in the region. When finished you can go to the tasting room and enjoy the wine. The staff here is very friendly and let you enjoy your time.”

“We had so much fun! Our first time horseback riding ever. We took advantage of the early bird special at 8:30 morning. It included an extra half hour for the price of an hour. Our guide was great, she was knowledgeable of the property and horses.”
