OUR LOVE OF HORSES & THE HOCKING HILLS, INSPIRES US TO SHARE THIS BEAUTIFUL AREA - AS SEEN FROM HORSEBACK - WITH OTHERS. THROUGH THE STABLE, WE MAKE NEW FRIENDS - EVERY RIDE.
WE BELIEVE" The memories of a quality ride - endure - long after the adventure is over ".
Although we are a public stable, our horses are OUR KIDS. They are treated with the love & care - these magnificent & intelligent creatures deserve.
We have owned most of these horses several years, & have trained alot of them also.
We usually do not saddle up the horses, unless we have reservations. HOWEVER, 3 can be ready (2 guests & guide)- in about an Hour, depending on how muddy they are & where they are. As when not needed, they are outside being horses!
Between rides, they are usually in stalls/shelters or under trees - out of the sun, & are given hay & water.
We do not ride mid-day in summer, on days that are extremely hot & humid; or in iminent storms. T-Storms, Downpours & High Winds - are grounds for delay or possible cancel/re-schedule. Too dangerous.
The horses get frequent baths all season, to remove sweat & keep their skin healthy.
They do not get sold off in the winter, traded for new in the spring; or any such thing.
If we can't keep them here, we find them a great 'Active Retirement' home !
