Jose "Mayo" Moctezuma

Owner & Trainer

Mayo Moctezuma has successfully trained and shown American Saddlebreds for over 25 years. After working with several area Saddlebred trainers, Mayo opened his own business in 2001 and has been at his present facility west of Woodstock, Illinois since 2004. 


Mayo’s skills and ability to understand the individual training needs of each horse are the foundation of his success.  His dedication and unparalleled work ethic consistently produce American Saddlebred horses and Hackney ponies that reach the maximum of their potential as horses and competitors. He offers his human customers the same commitment, skills and hard work that leads to their success as riders and in the show ring.

Our Facility

Moctezuma Stables offers large stalls in two heated barns, two indoor riding arenas (the largest is 180 x 50) and several outdoor riding areas. Ample pasture area is available for horses on turnout service. Both barns provide comfortable viewing areas.


Moctezuma Stables strives to create a welcoming environment for horse owners, students in the lesson program and their families and friends.

We are open Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday through Sunday.  During show season there may be times when the barn will be closed to customers due to all staff being away at competitions.
