Horse About Us

We have two farms so you may choose which site better accommodates you. Both of our farms offer horse owners, pet owners and/or hunters passing through a nice, quiet, comfortable place to stay where they will have their horses and pets right there on site with them.

Our 40-acre farm includes a completely remodeled farmhouse, a new 5-stall barn with 12x12 stalls and a tack room, 3 large paddocks with run-ins that will house up to 9 horses (3 per paddock), and an outdoor riding arena. The farmhouse is warm and cozy with all the comforts of home: large eat-in, fully equipped kitchen that includes a full size refrigerator, freezer and stove, dishwasher, coffee pot, toaster oven; satellite dish TV, DVD player, CD player, etc.. read more
