Quailhurst is excited to be part of the Wilsonville Chamber of Commerce’s new Oregon Horse Country initiative. Oregon Horse Country, spearheaded by Jennifer Johnson, is an effort to coordinate the area’s equestrian-oriented businesses and promote “equine tourism” in the Wilsonville area.

Clackamas and Yamhill counties are, per capita, the first and second most horse-populated counties in the country, according to Johnson, and the surrounding area hosts a wide variety of equine events, facilities, camps, schools, and other business. Yet, unlike the state of Kentucky or even countries such as Ireland, both know equine tourism destinations, Oregon’s horse country remains one of its “best kept secrets.”

On May 7, Quailhurst hosted a large group of Oregon tourism and travel representatives, serving as the final stop of Oregon Horse Country’s day-long Equine Familiarization Tour. While tasting our wines, tour members toured the farm’s stables and garden and enjoyed a dressage demonstration.
