FAMILY OWNED AND OPERATED
Opened in 2012, we are a family owned and operated small ranch nestled just 25 minutes south of Des Moines Iowa. Our 12 x 12 stalls provide your horse with the utmost comfort while boarded at our facility.  Our ranch includes 80 acres of timber and pasture ground along with gravel roads for your outdoor riding experience. 
120ft x 60ft indoor arena is available for all boarders. 

Basic riding lessons are available for all ages.  When you are done riding, plan a party in our 50 person banquet room with indoor temperature controlled viewing area of the arena. GREAT for birthday parties, 4H meetings, graduation parties or even office retreats.
