5/4/17 Updates.

What a busy last few weeks we have had.  We had the vet come to do the yearly check up for all of the horses. Each of the got their yearly shots, teeth done and health check ups. Every one of them got wonderful reviews, all are very healthy.

Last Tuesday we were able to take a beautiful trail ride in the Carson Valley. People always ask us if we ride the drafts. Yes, we do.

Our summer working horses all got new shoes on and are ready for work. Carriages are open Friday through Monday from 12pm-7pm (weather permitting).

Yesterday was the Carson Valley job fair, if you were unable to attend we are still accepting applications for part time summer drivers. If you are interested please fill out our application on our website under the employment tab. 

Today is the day that the crew makes the final decision on the stallion that we will be breeding Angel with.

We will be doing a wedding fam. this weekend in both South Lake Tahoe from The Lake Tahoe Resort to Edgewood at 10am and in the Carson Valley area at the Jacob's Berry Farm. If there is any brides that are getting married and what some ideas, this is a great event.

Here are some photos of our trail ride with the crew, Dwight on Jake (draft horse), Rebekah on Abe (draft horse), Veronica on Beretta and Barbara on Hat.
