We offer two arena, a round pen, outdoor pens, a large barn with 20 stalls, wash area, tack rooms, and more.
Samantha started out riding hunter/jumper at various show facilities in both Lexington, KY and Covington, LA. She has a solid foundation in both dressage and equitation. Samantha competed in AHJA rated shows for 7 years competing up to 3'9" Jumper.
In college, she taught kids' summer riding camps in both English and Western disciplines.
She has spent recent years learning more about western riding here in Missouri. She's explored various training methods and believes each horse needs their own approach. Safety is key when working around horses and Samantha encourages others to always improve their horsemanship by learning new styles and methods.
She has expanded her interests, training, and competition into liberty, in-hand, obstacles, trail, and patterned classes.
Lately, she enjoys competing in obstacle, trail, jumping, and pattern classes with her BLM Mustang, Kilchii.
Michael is Samantha's brother-in-law. He is employed full-time by the Stables and lives on-site. Michael has been caring for horses for several years and does all of the primary daily care and barn maintenance. Michael also maintains the pastures/fences and barn grounds. Though he's not a rider, he enjoys spoiling the horses with lots of petting and hugs.
