Horses go out in the pasture during the day and come in to their stall in the late afternoon.  There are 9 large pastures and 3 smaller pastures covering approximately 35 acres.  Horses are sorted by temperament with usually not more than 6 in a pasture although in here’s a one withe a pasture of 10 geldings who were all great friends.

    Do you welcome western riding also. Arebyour trails on your land.

  2. We sure do! Any breed of horse is welcome, any style of riding. A horse is a horse 😉
    The trails are on our land and we share some with the neighbors. There is open area and hilly woods to ride in. It doesn’t cover a lot of acreage but it winds around in the woods so you can easily spend an hour or more riding but hardly any time at all to get there.

    Do you do any Western Dressage shows or training

  6. I haven’t personally shown western dressage but our training compliments western dressage perfectly. I have an excellent western saddle that fits the majority of horses so I ride in a western saddle if the horse doesn’t have a dressage saddle that fits so I’m certainly not a “saddle snob” ;-). In fact, at the Great Arab Get Together I gave some tips to a reining/western trainer on what the judges look for and his client won all of his classes!
