Blue Oaks Center supports equine therapy, arts and education with one of America’s first horses, the Baca Chica Colonial Spanish strain. BOC’s Interpretive Center will additionally provide knowledge of the local, native Nishenam Tribe’s culture and heritage.
Blue Oaks Center will provide a State of the Art Equine Center to be used by the community for Equine Education and Therapy.

The Blue Oaks Center will support many community organizations including YMCA camps, scouts’ equine experiences, children, veterans and families’ equine therapy, training workshops, senior citizens horse activities, and school field trips.
