Peacock Hill Ranch
Where horses run free in pasture by day then eat and rest in private stalls and paddocks
DECEMBER: the month of joy, happiness and to finish what you started.
It's also Learn a Foreign Language, National Fruit Cake and Made in America month.
Happy December everyone! May your days be merry and bright!
It's not just the Festival of Lights.
May it also be a festival of hope, happiness, love and health.
Royan Herman, previous owner of Peacock Hill Ranch, is not only leaving the ranch she established but Shadow Hills as well. In addition to running a horse boarding facility, she has operated as a rescue, saving horses, dogs and peacocks. She also hosted memorable Harvest Moon dinner dance fundraisers and worked hard to help preserve the horse community. On top of that, she's got some wonderful stories of growing up in old Hollywood.
Royan is finishing up her new ranch in Sand Canyon, where Hobo will be the official greeter and Natty and Velvita will soon be trotting in to their new stalls for dinner and exploring new trails. And then there is Pablo, the longest resident at Peacock Hill and the inspiration for the website logo,
he is the lovable class clown who has matured into
the quiet sage of the pasture.
Royan may be moving to a new area code but don't be surprised if you catch her visiting with someone in the neighborhood or having breakfast at Rise and Shine.
So we won't say goodbye, just
good luck and THANK YOU Royan!
All Disciplines Welcome!
We welcome all disciplines of rider from Western to English (and everyone else in between). In our large, beautifully lit arena, we've held clinics, group lessons and a dressage schooling show. We even play horseball! Comfort and fun are the priorities.

This video was shot in the Hansen Dam Reservoir on Big Tujunga Creek. It is dedicated to Royan Herman, all my friends at Peacock Hill Ranch, and Coral 20. Many thanks to Jim Ford and Richard Green for their beautiful work. And to the star, Kitty, who did it all for a bucket of grain and some carrots.
"May you never be too grown up to search the skies on Christmas Eve."
Creature Comforts are our Priority
Sure, we specialize in horses, but we roll out the welcome mat for all kinds of critters. Peacock Hill Inc. helps re-home abused, abandoned and BLM horses. Please inquire if you are interested in adopting a horse.
