Westwind Community Barn

 Historic Westwind Barn is owned and operated by the Town of Los Altos Hills. The facility sits on 15 acres and is adjacent to the Byrne Preserve. The Countess Margit Bessenyey purchased the property to serve as a breeding facility and training center for her Hungarian horses. She worked out of Westwind Barn with world-renowned trainer, Linda Tellington-Jones, whose work with people and their horses continues today in clinics across the country. In 1976, Countess Bessenyey donated the Westwind site to the Town. In 2009, Westwind Barn underwent extensive renovations, making it a state-of-the-art horse boarding and training facility.
