We are a Girl Scout Focusing on building girls of courage, confidence, and character is our main priority. We have a 21 year old barn with a 25-30 head herd. We run summer camp and an extremely busy weekend schedule for the rest of the year. Our program includes both English and Western disciplines including trail rides on our beautiful 1,000 acre property. We have three sand rings and 15 miles of trails. The stable holds 24 horses with four stalls attached to our hay barn. There are two paddocks connected to the stable by a courtyard, with a third paddock being built currently. There is a 25+ acre pasture up a hill for a vacation spot for some of our horses when the camp is not busy. We have an overnight trail program that includes riding out to a paddock at our primitive campsite and making camp for the night.
