  • The Red Horse Barn is a beautiful venue that was the perfect setting for our wedding! The bridal room and groom's room are so charming, so perfect for us to get ready in! Carolyn, the wedding coordinator, was so sweet, kind, efficient, and a pleasure to work with! She made our planning easy and smooth! I loved the barn...the flowers, gazebo, landscape, horses...everything there is beautiful and perfect!

    I'm blushing! :) We enjoyed having you here so much. Your wedding was a day I will remember with such fondness. I was in awe watching how your family worked together. I would love to see some pictures!

  • I'm the mother of the bride so had a lot to figure out and complete since my daughter and fiancee lived in Nevada. We booked this venue over a year ago. It was beautiful when we booked it. As the wedding got closer we tried to call people at the venue and everytime it seemed the person no longer worked there. Finally we got a person that is permanent and sooo easy to work with and that is Carolyn Miller. We then started going to the venue to check it out and unknown to us they ripped out a lot of plants and it looked so horrible. We were so scared and mad that this was not what we had booked. Carolyn assured us they were planting new plants. After about a month the venue looked beautiful. They did a top notch relandscaping. So happy. We had a few concerns and Carolyn was there EVERY time to work with us and come up with a solution. I would definitely have a wedding there. All our guests kept saying they didn't know this place was here. You don't feel like you are right off... Read more

  • We absolutely loved our venue!! We picked this venue because we were having a country chic wedding. With the barn and the horses, it was perfect for what we were going for. We can't wait to get the pictures back. The fields are so perfect for pictures. Being an August afternoon wedding, we were a little concerned that the wedding was going to be very hot, but because our ceremony was on the grass the guests had the perfect amount of shade. The venue does not provide anything, except for restrooms and valet (for additonal fees) so it is definitely a DIY venue.

  • Absolutely love love love the Red Horse Barn!!!! My husband and I just had our wedding reception there on August 20th, 2011 and we couldn't have asked for anything more perfect and amazing. The site is so beautiful, very secluded feeling, creates a wonderful intimate atmospher and has such amazing facilities and beautiful decor. Our guests keep complimenting the Red Horse Barn and how beautiful our reception was because of the great reception site. The entire equestrian center is beautiful and we actually took most of our wedding party and bride/groom pictures around the stables and trails that were around the site. I highly recommend the Red Horse Barn for all wonderful events, but especially for a wedding ceremony and reception. We had 150 guests and we still had lots of room to spare. The open grass area was great for lawn games that our guests played while enjoying cocktails and appetizers. The weather was also perfect. Our reception was at 5 in the afternoon so the sun was...

  • Amazing venue. Perfect outdoor ceremony and reception venue. We had an evening wedding there and had to do very little decorating and the place looked amazing. The string lights around the building were perfect. We had no flowers at our wedding, just candles for the centerpieces and it was perfect. They were very helpful and responsive. We were able to have our rehearsal at the venue the night before and they were always welcoming us to come and see other weddings to get ideas. The gazebo with rock fountains was perfect for the ceremony and we had much more than enough space for our 100 person wedding. The venue does not allow for loud music to be played after 10pm and this was something that concerned us at first, but it worked out great, we had plenty of time for dancing and partying and our wedding didn't peter out at all, we had lots of friends and family left at the end of the night to help us pack up our stuff! Perfect venue for a perfect wedding!!

  • This venue is amazing. Large and beautiful. We had over 250 people and the venue was perfect for the ceremony and also the reception - all outside. Even though it is at a equestrian center, you cannot smell any kind of horses. The site manager, Jennifer, was so easy to work with and so helpful. We LOVED everything about it. Would highly recommend this venue. Make sure the weather is at a good time of year, as it is all outside. No way to move to the inside in case of bad weather. Also, remember you have to bring EVERYTHING in, as they only provide the venue. They have great references for vendors at really good prices.

  • The venue is beautiful, and just what I wanted, but we had a lot of problems with slow communication over there. We could never call directly, we always had to wait for a return phone call. Also, there is not air conditioning in either the brides or grooms room. I got married in the heat of August and I did not know that they didn't have A/C until one of my bridesmaid's friends told her, they didn't tell us that when we were viewing the place. We were melting away. Shelly, the site's day-of contact, was helpful and worked well with our wedding coordinator. The site doesn't not come with anything, you have to outside all your vendors and they MUST have a 1 million dollar insurance to be accepted in. It's a pretty venue and you can do a lot with it, but know all of this going in before you book it. If I did, I might have booked somewhere else.

  • This is an awesome venue! It's a DIY sort of place. (you have to get your own caterer, rentals for tables/etc, bring in decor, the whole thing). We wanted a backyard feeling wedding & this venue allowed us to have it. It's all outdoors (except the bathrooms are inside a small building). The beauty is you can do as much or as little with the space as you want. There is an area for games if you wish, a gazebo (which we used for our "photobooth" area) and plenty of space for dinner/dancing. They are easy & accomodating to work with. They do have some rules however to adhere to. As long as you respect their conditions, it's a perfect outdoor location. (for EX: you must use a pre-approved DJ from their list of 3 & you can't have live bands due to noise issues) and you must place the DJ in a particular few spots.... Also, they have a certain # of VIP Valet spots but the rest must be shuttled from a lot across the street (which we were fortunate to not have to use due to the QTY of gue... Read more

  • I love this venue. I got married there 2 weeks ago and every one of my guests complimented me on the location. It is cozy without being cramped and unique with an elegant feel. The staff was wonderful to work with both in the planning stages and day-of. They provided a great vendor list and I used a couple of their recommendations, but they were totally open to using outside vendors as well, as long as they can meet Red Horse Barn's somewhat strict insurance requirements. We had the In-N-Out truck at the wedding and the venue was really great about helping arrange everything and plan the logistics of the truck setup. The only negative is that the venue doesn't provide anything in terms of rentals: you have to bring in your own tables and chairs and anything else you need. But even this added expense was totally worth it to get married there. If I had it all to do over again, I would still absolutely choose this venue.

  • The Red Horse Barn was a perfect ceremony and wedding location for us. I have grown up in Huntington Beach and moved to England a couple of years ago. I really wanted to have a HB wedding but not the typical hotel style wedding. RHB has an awesome outdoor feeling without being to "rustic!" The coordinator, Jennifer is super easy to work with and had a lot of good vendor recommendations! We used her catering and photographer contacts and both were great! The only downfall is that you have to be done by 10 due to sound ordnances, but to be honest after a full day of getting ready, the ceremony, talking to a million family and friends 10 is a good time! We had an after party with a few select people and it was a great mellow way to end a perfect day!

  • This venue was GORGEOUS! We ended up having amazing weather and it was so beautiful. We had a little problem communicating but my wedding coordinator was right there to pick up the slack. It is unfortunate that it is not inclusive with seating etc, however with the right caterer and the right coordinator it all came together beautifully. I am so happy to have chosen this as my location, and other than a couple of tweaks that I know i would do after the fact i had a great day and wouldn't change a thing! I cant wait to see the pictures now!

  • Beautiful wedding venue; however The RHB doesn’t have proper permits for events. My contract included a live band until 12am, a month before my wedding Jennifer told me that I could no longer have live music due to the loud noise. I had already paid for the band and the $1 million insurance. Jennifer and the owner of the place ignored my calls. I called HBPD and asked if there had been any reports of loud live music on The RHB and they said NO. I called the City of HB and told them my situation; HB City told me that The RHB is a private property on City Land not authorized to host public events but since I had a contract they would make note so the police wouldn’t stop my wedding! On the wedding day the valet crew helped themselves to our food/drinks, Jennifer did the same and she didn’t congratulate us and the security stole our alcohol bottles. The police show up by 10pm; the officer informed us the complaint was reported by The RHB and not from the neighborhoods; he said that ... Read more

  • I think the hardest part for me was the one million dollar event insurance required for each vendor. It cost a total of five hundred dollars to have my vendors insured. The setting was beautiful and the atmosphere lent itself strongly to the beauty of my wedding. The woman in charge of setting up the weddings was very nice and professional but is not a wedding coordinator. You have to outsource every vendor individually including rental companies and caterer. Overall though it was beautiful.
