Our brand new covered ring (70 x 140) means we can ride anytime (it's lit!) and in any weather. Crumb rubber footing is soft and springy. Delightful in summer, as it's shady and fly-free! Picnic table and grassy viewing area for your friends and admirers. Marked for dressage, yet plenty of room for jumps and gymnastic grids.


"None of Your Beezxaw" (aka Beezie) is one of our beloved lesson ponies. She is as gentle and mannerly as any pony could be. She enjoys being greeted by happy children, along with the carrots that they bring! While calm and cool, she is also Very well trained . . in dressage and jumping. She especially likes to eat Candy Canes, and loves to have her eyes rubbed (gently!) She also enjoys trail rides and has been learning to pull the carriage. She'll be a big part of our lesson program again this summer, and will be helping us to teach carriage driving, even to the youngsters. Silly quirk?  She ALWAYS yawns just before being bridled!?


Sonia, one of our Working Students, happy after a great ride on Linden.
