a horse's ears.  ~Arabian Proverb

Our Story......

  2023 SUMMER

​          Upcoming Events​

Pinewood Stable was started by the Hilligoss Family as a small hobby farm just for our own few horses.  We grew into something bigger as the family got involved in trail riding, 4-H and Saddle Club. As the family's interest and knowledge grew, we became involved in more horse-related activities, such as showing horses in different disciplines, gaming, other competitions. We wanted to share our love of horses and soon started providing lessons and horse camps so others can enjoy them too.

Please NoteWe are a Lesson and Boarding stable.  We do not offer trail rides or rent any of our lesson horses for people to ride.

​​​​​​​Pinewood Stable has been in business close to 20 years. We have been boarding horses, giving lessons and/or training horses for 18 years. We pride ourselves on the quality of care every horse receives while at Pinewood Stables; all horses are treated as if they are our own. Our instructors provide quality instruction in different disciplines at  reasonable rates.  We are proud supporters of the local 4H Horse Project, 4H Horse Bowl Team, and Saddle Clubs because we believe in the future of kids and these amazing animals.
