We hope to see you soon at our wonderful 113 acre ranch near Granite Falls, WA. The natural forests and meadows, the Pilchuck River, the Cascade foothills, and the rustic charm of our ranch create an atmosphere of "days gone by". Enjoy riding with us all year, not just during summer day camp. We offer a wide variety of activities for children, tweens, teens, adults who want to learn all about horses and returning riders at our "down-home" riding stable. We started our horse day camp program in the summer of 1978 after we'd moved here in October 1977 from The Funny Farm, our pony farm south of Everett, a short distance from Silver Lake.
With more than 50 years in the horse business, we still feature:
Gentle, sweet horses who love carrots
Caring, experienced owners - yes, we're still the same people who taught horseback riding to children back in the day.
Outdoor riding arenas, corrals and an indoor riding arena
Small riding groups - Maximum of 10 students to adult instructor.
Easy drive from Lake Stevens, Marysville, Everett, Smokey Point, Mukilteo & Arlington.
