About Us

Care of horses

Our experienced staff is ready to accommodate your horse's needs. Horses are turned out daily (weather permitting) in the four large fenced paddocks near the barn. In addition to these a 50 acre self-turnout pasture is available for your horse's pleasure. Every effort is made to find your horse compatible pasture mates. An individualized feeding program is available for your horse.

Supplements and/or medications are given when needed. All of the horses are required to be on a regular deworming and vaccination schedule. The farm is served by a nearby vet clinic that offers 24-hour emergency service. Every effort is made to maintain a healthy environment for your horse

Hunt seat lesson program

School horses are always found to be a key factor for those learning to ride. All experienced riders carry memories of the school horses that helped them master the fundamentals of horsemanship. The school horses at Mingo Creek Farms are carefully selected and trained for their important job. Students will find them to be patient, calm, and well experienced. Good school horses allow novice and more advanced students to progress more quickly in learning riding skills. They become trusted partners in learning first the basic gaits of walk, trot, canter then jumping an easy fence, to finally going around the full course of fences that are typical of the horse shows.

Not every horse is suited for this special job and all riding instructors treasure their good school horses. Mingo Creek puts a high priority on finding these special equine individuals and keeping them in top shape. They are the heart of our educational riding program. Every effort is made to pair the most suitable horse to the needs of each individual student rider.
