About

Horse Crazy. Passionate. Obsessed. Addicted?  Yup, that describes our love of horses.


Based in Temecula, California, and serving the Temecula Valley and San Diego County regions, Planet Equus is owned and operated by Stacey Sofia Clarke.

Stacey has 24 years of hands-on experience with horses in many areas including riding in both Western and English disciplines, training, barn management, professional grooming, and just generally being horse crazy.  Her riding passion is Show Jumping with her mare Sahara, but enjoys trying new things and has had a blast fox hunting, team penning, 3-day eventing, reining, cattle driving, and trail riding, to name a few. 

She holds both Computer Science and Equestrian Studies degrees from The University of Findlay, and has recently left a career in the software industry to pursue her passion of working with horses full time. 

She completed certification as an Equine Sports Massage Therapist (ESMT) through Equissage, and is currently completing additional Equine Anatomy coursework through Equinology.
