in Hocking Hills, Ohio.
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. BUT - the horses Lodgings, for now, are at the neighbors & not at our new house/property; & we will NOT be meeting at the neighbors ---- so, we have to bring them to our house 1st. Yes - this is a headache - but unless someone donates alot of $$ for a real barn on our own property .... it's the best we could do, for right now.
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 !
