Kris is a wonderful teacher. She is very safety conscious and always makes sure you are on the correct horse and you are well prepared for shows. Her events are well organized and fun. You could no...t find a better place to learn to ride or if you are already a rider to improve your skill level. See More

Rikki is hauling to Florida next week with 1 trailer spot open headed down and 4 open headed back!

Does anyone need anything hauled?

Rikki Babcock

I have been asked about hauling a horse to Florida - if I do so I will have 2-3 open slots down and 3-4 back (depending on which trailer I take). Would probably be hauling in the next couple weeks. Does anyone need anything shipped either way? Just putting feelers out!

We will be having another spay/neuter & rabies clinic with Dr. Stephanie Heikkinen December 27th. Prices for spay/neuter INCLUDE a rabies shot. Male cat: $57 Female cat: $90. We are only offering neuter for dogs and the price of that goes by weight - a 100lb dog neuter is $165. If your animal is up to date on rabies, bring the certificate to get $15 off. Other services may be offered - please just ask! Dr. Heikkinen is also a large animal vet and can see horses if given enough notice. Please CALL KRIS to sign up at 848-5310.

Rikki has a super lovely AQHA mare for sale. 14 years old, 14.2h, and she is trail horse deluxe! She is also coming along VERY nicely as a dressage or even western dressage horse with a very solid and consistent walk and trot, and her canter gets better every ride. She's an absolute pleasure to be around, one of the kindest Rikki has had. Send her a message or email - babcockr@husson.edu - for more details.

Rikki has a really lovely trail horse for sale. Please PM her for more details.

We had a great clinic yesterday with Mary O’Rourke! A full day with many riders braving the cold. Everyone had good, safe rides and learned a lot. Here is Nancy on her mare, Keeper, during their lesson.

We currently have 2 horses for sale and a horse to free lease.

The first horse is a tb/app yearling colt. He is gelded, stands tied, trailers, has his feet don...e regularly. He’s had about as good of a start as a foal can get! Contact Kris at 848-5310

The second horse is a 20 year old grade QH mare, 15h. She is looking for a trail home only! She is sound and has been a wonderful lesson horse but she doesn’t want to teach anymore. She will lead, follow, go out alone. Safe in traffic, through water, etc. Super safe girl! Has some quirks but they are easy to work around. Contact Rikki

Kris also has a 19 year old AQHA mare, 15.1+ h up for free lease. She’s great on trail, pushy on the ground but would be fine for older kids or adults. Not much bothers her, she trailers exceptionally well - she is our go to babysitter in the trailer! Easy keeper, does need front shoes.

All three of these horses are up to date on everything.

Prices on the first two are the same and will be posted in the comments.

Good morning all! Our hat and mitten trail ride starts at TEN tomorrow! The weather is looking like spotty showers, so if you don’t come to ride PLEASE come to eat!!! There’s no use hiding it - that’s out favorite part of the hat and mitten! See y’all tomorrow at TEN.

It’s a beauty of a Saturday morning!!! Here is a reminder about our annual Hat & Mitten trail ride being held on October 15 this year - that is just 8 days away! As always, we have long and short loops to accommodate most riders/horses, and the best part is the lunch! Please let us know if you’ll be coming so we know how much food Kris should prepare 😉 If you’ve never been, know that most people come just for the apple crisp! Have a great fall day, y’all, we will see you next Sunday!
