Horseback Riders Enjoying the Day

Stay in our Vacation Rentals to Enjoy the Area

If you are an animal lover this is a place you will feel comfortable.

We have seven beautiful horses. Two of them can become unicorns. Our herd has been together for over 10 years so they all know their place and they are all very comfortable here.

Beginner Horseback Riders are our specialty

We don't do trail rides. We provide a petting zoo including 7 Horses, a mini Pig, 2 Goats, 3 Dogs, 2 chickens, 5 Guinea pigs, and a turtle. Our pastures overlook the Mississippi river. We can dress up our horses as unicorns, if you ask in advance, for a magical experience for your kids. Our buckskin looks just like the animated movie star horse "Spirit."

Spectacular Sunsets are Common

If you are looking for a relaxing getaway with horses and beautiful scenery surrounded by nature you have found the right place. We have a very large indoor riding arena, an outdoor dressage area and pastures. There are wilderness areas a short distance from our facility which provide wonderful hiking trails and hunting. We do not currently provide trail rides on horseback. Please don't enter any horse enclosures unless liability release has been signed by all adults and guardians have signed for children, and you have express permission, each time you enter a horse enclosure, from one of the Wranglers (Roger and Sabina). You are welcome to enjoy the beauty of these majestic animals as you enjoy your stay in our comfortale vacation units (not yet available for overnight stays).

Our new miniature pig, Ferkelchen, which means "little piglet" in German, was born on 8/7/20 and is expected to grow to about 45 lbs. We plan to raise her like a dog. Seen here at 10 days old with our guinnea pig. Ferkelchen is growing fast and she gets cuter with each pound she puts on.
