Please, always call before coming out!!

We are by appointment only.

     You may schedule a personal appointment by phone or e-mail.  An advance notice will insure that someone is here to help with all your equine needs.  We are here all the time, however we might be out riding around the farm or doing chores!!  Or busy with customers.

We do not take drive up rides or lessons.

    Please call   812-839-3784       Email to :  Shilo Farms          

We spend a lot of time riding and in the barns.  Be sure to leave your name and number with a brief message and someone will get back with you when we get back in! 


**For 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 car GPS.

    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 waiting....

    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!
