When we pick a horse out for our trail riding herd OR our horse camps,
we keep our customers in mind. We're VERY picky, which means you get the
best quality horse, with training that will make him a pleasant ride. We have
docile and quiet horses for beginners, yet every horse is schooled so that they
are an enjoyable ride for experienced riders who choose to trail ride with us,
because every one of our horses also works in our advanced horse camp program!
They're one of a kind animals, and we've spent ten years developing a 'trail riding'
and 'horse camp friendly' beast, and we take the time to make sure they are trained!
We keep all our horses year round - and after five or six years of great service, they
get to move on to a wonderful home, since we believe that good horses are happy
horses, and we believe that every one of them deserves to retire healthy and sound!

If you don't believe us, come on out and take a ride on one of our
unique & loveable characters - you'll see! They are a perfect fit!
