FACILITIES

80 acres of trails to keep your horse being a horse

Sherwood Forest Equestrian Center is a family owned farm, located just south of Portland, Oregon between the bustling equestrian communities of Sherwood and Wilsonville. Sherwood Forest is a unique boarding facility that offers a wide variety of spaces for our boarders. The main barn itself has large, well-lit stalls with quality bedding, several tack rooms, wash racks with hot and cold water, cross-ties, farrier spaces, a laundry room, and several other amenities. The facility has a large indoor arena with 2 separate viewing decks and a spacious observation room, a large outdoor sand ring, and a round pen for our boarders to enjoy and train in. The front acreage is dedicated to the care of all our horses with clean well-lit barns, rolling pastures, individual turnout paddocks, and all our arenas. The back 80 acres are a fabulous mixture of fields and forest with miles of trails. A fun cross country course centers around a large water complex and mowed trails provide ample room to condition your horse over terrain or just enjoy a summer walk through the shade of the trees.


We strive to provide an upscale experience for our boarders while maintaining a friendly and social atmosphere around the barns for everyone to enjoy! During the summer we have large BBQ’s for all the barn members, camps, and other inclusive events. Come see our picturesque setting and join the Sherwood Forest Family!
