What I like:
I never boarded here. Bought a horse from them.
What needs improvement:
I was specifically looking for a trail horse to purchase. Particularly my fault as it was winter and I didn\'t get a chance to trail ride the horse. But, told by the owner what a great trail horse the mare was. Tried her in the indoor arena and she seemed like a nice horse.... Wrong! Was totally misled by Barn Owner. Horse was not suitable for trail riding. Very nervous horse, skittish, etc.

Called the Barn Owner and she said she would help me find another owner for the horse. When in reality, she never helped and never heard from her again.

What I like:
Number of horses
What needs improvement:
The saturnine staff with sulky disposition -needs a makeover- professionalism not existent- don\'t expect to get in touch with anyone online or on the phone- however I recommend not going in person despite that- it\'s rundown and nobody\'s looking to assist you

What I like:
Rather dirty and unfriendly. The tack room is unorganized and sloppy. The stalls are dirty and unkept. The bathroom is the most horrid place on earth. Just plan gross!
What needs improvement:
CLEANING! CLEANING! CLEANING! The place needs some major cleaning up! Plus nicer people.
