An Overview of Sand Hill Stables
Ride your heart out in the bright indoor arena, utilize the round pen or hit the trails and cross country course. Your horse will be spoiled with plenty of group turnout, spacious windowed stalls equipped with feed tub, water bucket (two if he’s a big drinker!). An additional service that we provide is a laundry service for saddle pads, sheets, and blankets. Stalls are cleaned 6 days a week.
Sand Hill Stable provides a relaxed atmosphere where our boarders and friends can relax, enjoy a cup of coffee (and maybe a doughnut), read a book or watch videos in our heated lounge (with viewing into arena and a full kitchenette) and bathroom. We also have a gym (and heated wash rack for when you’re done– just kidding!).
Sand Hill Stable offers a variety of lesson programs to address the needs of all levels of rider. Whether you are interested in Eventing or Natural Horsemanship, or just want an introduction to horses, we will make sure you are safe and comfortable while enjoying your horse.
