Usually when I want to take pictures of a horse, he goes to extra trouble to be muddy and to get extra tangles in his mane and tail. I happened to have my camera handy one evening when Jake was looking particularly handsome–AND CLEAN!–while the sun was at a very nice angle.
Summer camp was a blast this year! In case you missed it, the photos are available on our Summer Camp home page. Here are a few of the best ones.
There are two camps available: June 1-5 and June 8-12. Camps will run Monday-Friday from 9am to 3pm. Ages 6-16 years will receive instruction in English or western riding every day, plus barn activities and crafts. We have a large covered arena, so camp riding never gets rained out. Campers will also learn ground school with PK Theobald, round pen training techniques, and get to play on the equine obstacle course! For more information, please call PK Theobald at 901/857-7500.

Shedding season is here! Now that it has warmed up, come visit your horse and give them a thorough grooming and a warm bath–we have hot and cold running water in the wash rack. If you don’t have a horse of your own to groom, we have several that could use some extra love and attention while they wait for their forever-families!
Now that the weather is starting to warm up, it’s time to start lessons or get back into a regular routine. Did you know that we offer discount lesson packages?
- Bulk Lesson Discount: Purchase 10 lessons and get one free. This is a great deal for committed students!
- Gift Package: Purchase 4 lesson gift certificates and receive a free stuffed horse keychain or other horsey-themed prize. This is a fun deal for the younger riders in your life and makes a great birthday gift or reward for good grades!
Even if the weather surprises us, we have a covered arena for rainy days and a lighted arena for evening lessons!
