All Breed Premier Horse Boarding
& Riding Facility
Double Diamond… its name implies value and brilliance, and that’s exactly
the reputation this 184-acre ranch has upheld for 12 years. Located
just 20 minutes northwest of San Antonio and 5 minutes west of Boerne, the
ranch sits at the edge of Texas’ famously beautiful Hill Country. Double
Diamond Ranch was designed to play a role at the top of the state's horse
industry and it has consistently been operated as one of the leading private
equine training and reproduction centers in the world. Now, however,
there are changes in the wind.
Ted Blanch, owner of Double Diamond Ranch and developer of the surrounding
Diamond Ridge area, has announced that the state of the art facility, Double
Diamond Equestrian Center (DDEC) is open for boarding to horse lovers of
all breeds, also opening their doors to accommodate trainers with clients
as well. DDEC can also safely accommodate stallions, and welcomes mares,
geldings and foals of any age.
DDEC is an opportunity for boarders and trainers to enjoy
the amenities of a truly unique and up-scale boarding facility. The Equestrian
Center has over 80,000 square feet under one roof, designed with both the
horses and their owners in mind. All 80+ stalls are 12’x12’ in the
main barn, each equipped with stall mats, automatic water, overhead lighting
and fan. Over half the stalls have windows overlooking the picturesque
surroundings. The facility also offers 24-hour staff and security.
Double Diamond Equestrian Center is not only impressive, but
more importantly, it is functional. The centerpiece of the facility is the
lighted 110’ by 200’ indoor arena, with large exhaust fans on both sides
of the arena to eliminate overheating in the summer. There are 3 hot
walkers (1 covered), 4 round pens (2 covered), a full size outdoor sand arena,
8 spaciously lit cross-tie grooming stalls, 4 wash stalls with hot and cold
water, turnout paddocks and shelters, and numerous grass pastures and bountiful
For the convenience and comfort of the boarders, there are 2 large tack
rooms with tack lockers, as well as an air-conditioned lounge/kitchen in
the back of the main barn. In the front area of the main barn
are the ranch offices and the formal lounge area. Above the ranch offices
and formal lounge is the air-conditioned banquet room, with a full commercial
kitchen, and a cocktail bar/lounge area which overlooks both the indoor arena
and the Hill Country landscape. It is available to clients to rent
for private functions.
Leading the Equestrian Center’s management team will be Victoria Blanch,
daughter of owner Ted Blanch. Her involvement in the horse industry, and
Double Diamond Ranch, over the past several years has given her the talent
and skills to provide exceptional care for all boarding horses.
“The team at Double Diamond is dedicated to making your experience
exceptional with a safe, fun, family oriented boarding, riding and horse
care facility,” said Victoria. “With hard work, attentiveness to our
boarder's ideas and requests, and strong financial contributions we’ve established
a reputation of action. Our passion is horses! And with that said, a
life centered on a boarding ranch where the opportunity to interact with people
of like interests every day, is a true to life dream. At Double Diamond
Equestrian Center potential for developing great friendships are abundant.
It’s our pleasure to answer any questions you may have, and it would be an
honor to earn your business.”
