What I like:
Super friendly and down-to-earth atmosphere. No silly barn drama. Toni and Pete are very knowledgeable and able to help with anything and everything. Pete takes great care of the barn. The stalls are always clean with fresh bedding. All the horses are extremely happy here. The turnouts are huge, and all of them give the horses ample access to grass. The horses are fed twice daily, and they also get hay three times daily along with being outside all day unless weather does not permit. They have an active lesson program. All of the horses are well-cared for. There are two riding arenas, one of which is lit for night riding. Although it is active, it is very quiet and peaceful.
What needs improvement:
Nothing - everything is fantastic.
