"You can rest easy knowing that your horse is in good hands! I treat every horse on the farm as if they were my own. I do what I can to keep board costs reasonable without sacrificing quality, safety, or well-being. I encourage togetherness among the boarder family by hosting several events and activities throughout the year, as well as strictly enforcing a no drama rule! I keep the environment positive, clean, and organized to provide a comfortable experience at the barn." - Sami Jo
