80x140 Boarding Barn
80x140 Custom Built Barn

    N estled in the rural Northern Illinois Farmland, we have built a first class barn for boarding, lessons, training, and trail riding. Set on 120 acres, we have developed many amenities over the years at our boarding facility that include a quality feeding program, indoor riding arena, on property riding trails, large pasture turnouts, and outdoor arena.

Our staff is trained at the British Horse Society in Hertfordshire, England and have many years experience in boarding horses. While many of our boarders are here for our Illinois Summer Show circuit, we do provide a very relaxed environment regardless of your desires. Whether Western Pleasure or Hunter Jumper, our boarding facility will suit your needs.

We have been in the boarding business since 2004 and continue to develop a solid reputation in Northern Illinois for our boarding, training, and lesson programs. Our success stories range from Grand Champion at Boone County Fair to countless champions at Open and Rated shows within Northern Illinois and South Central Wisconsin.

100x200 Outdoor Arena
100x200 Outdoor Arena

Built in 2009, we spent a lot of time and effort expanding our boarding offerings by building this outdoor arena. Designed and constructed by a local professional contractor, it has character and style next to a half acre pond. It is set behind the barn almost 2000 feet from any road here in Northern Illinois and is very quiet and secluded.

Beginner Lessons

For Beginners:
If you are new or have no experience at all with horses and need some basic instruction on how to care, ride, and maintain your equine friend, we can help. There are only a handful of barns in Northern Illinois that provide a safe ride environment with the type of facility we have to offer. We offer basic to intermediate instruction that can provide you with the knowledge and information you need to care for your horse.

Intermediate Jumping

For Intermediate:
Have you been riding for a while and need to take it to the next level? Do you want to move from basic riding to jumping and cross country? Our lesson programs can take you there. We can evaluate your current skills and discuss your desires to determine what the appropriate lesson program design would be to improve your skills and confidence in riding and provide you with the end results.

Stable Management

Indoor Arena

Facility Management:
Do you own your own boarding barn? Are you looking for additional knowledge on how to care for your horse in the long term? Our barn manager and owner can provide you will all the knowledge you need. Long term care of horse includes knowledge of the following topics:

Feeding Programs/Diet:
Just like humans, not all horses have the same dietary requirements and needs. We can teach you how to evaluate feed, supplements, and basic nutrition of whatever horse you will own in the future.

Hay quality and Pasture Rotation:
Not all hay is equal and knowing how to purchase quality hay for your breed of horse and to properly rotate your horses in the pastures is valuable information to maintain your facility over the long haul.

Keeping your horses healthyat your barn or boarded at someone elses includes knowing how to keep their feet properly trimmed. Knowing how to select a farrier and having some knowledge of what types of shoes and trims are appropriate for the activity your horse will be performing. Our staff has worked with many farriers over the years and can assist you in evaluating farriers.

Vet and Health:
Just as you learn how to care for your own health over the years, caring for your horse's health also needs to be learned. Knowing when your horse is off and then what to do about it is not easy to figure out. Knowing the difference between something that can be addressed on your own versus calling the Vet can save you thousands in the long run and we feel is an important part of owning a horse. Our extensive training from the British Horse Society and Vet Training courses can teach you the signs of a healthy horse to when it is serious enough to contact a Vet.
