We have a fantastic lineup of highly-qualified instructors and trainers to provide a comprehensive educational program for boarders, lesson students, and haul-ins. We strive for excellence for our riders and horses at all levels, from beginners through adult amateurs in dressage, eventing, hunters, show jumping, and show ring equitation.

Stable hands


We are proud of our knowledgeable and reliable staff members who conduct the daily horse management duties and facility maintenance of the farm. We support social security, worker's compensation, and boarding discounts for all employees. 

Farm Maintenance


Our maintenance crew help keep the farm in good repair and looking tip-top.  Much time is spent on keeping our 20 acres of pastures productive and nutritious, and maintaining 1.7 miles of fencing. We appreciate their efforts!
