everyone who loves MapQuest and GPS Please Read**
We live out in the
country! We're probably about 15 or 20 miles from town. The street signs are small!! Heck, you might even find a dog
sleeping in the middle of the road and the occasional chicken! MapQuest
and GPS systems
gives good directions from the larger cities, but please use the directions
below when you get closer to the farm. A lot of the street names that
MapQuest will give you are not marked out here with the names, but numbers
or vise versa. It's very easy to get lost, and almost everyone does when
they've used MapQuest.
Not to mention, occasionally you won't get
a cell phone signal. (The "can you hear me now" guy has never been
here!!!!) So may I suggest, read and print out these
directions from our website. Don't get me wrong, MapQuest is a great
website, but they don't know how to tell people to get here! Usually, they
send people about 5 miles out of the way. So, just a warning!! Use
it if you must, but be ready! I highly recommend you print these
directions. I have been told that you can edit the map on your personal
If you do use mapquest, I would advise still
taking these directions just in case. Also, mapquest normally will over
estimate how long it will take to get here. If you have an appointment for
10 am, please don't show up at 9 am. We schedule all our rides so we have
time in between to rest or change out horses. There is a lot of pre-work
that goes into your ride. If you show up 45 minutes early, you will be
Please be sure to also take
our phone number in case of emergencies or delays. We don't mind if you're
running late, just give us a call! There is no need to rush! You're
coming to ride the horses to relax not rush. Can't wait to see you!
