Whether your horse is an accomplished competitor, your trusted pleasure rider or an older fella looking for a loving home to live out his years, Snapps Creek Stables is the place to enjoy life's simple pleasures.
Snapps Creek Stables is the perfect alternative to the large, intense, expensive and restrictive environments of the high-end stables. We have no walls of ribbons or trophies, no horses of prestigious bloodlines, and no hoity attitudes. We don't have dress codes (except ideally helmets and heals). We don't break horses, breed, sell, host shows, offer riding by the hour or accept stallions. We do have instructors available for our boarders. We do have comfortable facilities, a friendly atmosphere, and a commitment to quality care of your loved one in a nurturing, informal environment. Our specialty is the care of your horse. Retirement and special needs horses are most welcome.
Although we are not competitive, does not mean that you can't be. We have all the facilities needed to fulfill your training needs with a large arena, round pen, jumps, barrels and even a storage area for your trailer.
Are you an experienced rider who would love the opportunity to establish your own riding program but don't have the facilities? Let's talk.
