OUR GOAL IS:

TO ASSURE EACH OF OUR RIDERS LEAVE OUR STABLES A BETTER RIDER THAN WHEN THEY ARRIVED.

WE STRIVE TO GIVE EACH AND EVERY CLIENT A REAL CHANCE TO RIDE A HORSE THE WAY HORSEBACK RIDING IS MEANT TO BE.

RIDE AS YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED...IN OPEN FIELDS, OVER CREEKS AND THROUGH DEER TRAILS. WE RIDE SLOW, AT A NICE PEACEFUL PACE...OR WE CAN PICK UP THE PACE AND CANTER HERE AND THERE...

TELL US THE KIND OF  RIDE YOU DESIRE WHEN MAKING YOUR RESERVATION AND WE'LL DO OUR BEST TO COMPLY.

OUR HORSES:

WE HAVE FAST HORSES, SLOW HORSES AND IN-BETWEEN HORSES. WE HAVE LAID BACK HORSES AND SPIRITED HORSES.

SOME OF OUR HORSES ARE TALL AND SOME ARE SHORT BUT THEY ARE ALL BASICALLY HORSES, NOT PONIES.

WE WILL PUT CHILDREN ON WHAT WE CALL CHILD BROKE HORSES, BUT A CHILD BROKE HORSE DOES NOT ALWAYS

MEAN IT WILL BE THE SMALLEST HORSE. ALL OUR HORSES ARE GENTLE, SOME ARE JUST MORE SPIRITED THAN OTHERS.

TACK:

WE AUTOMATICALLY SADDLE OUR HORSES WITH WESTERN SADDLES UNLESS ANOTHER STYLE IS REQUESTED

(AUSSIE OR ENGLISH), WHEN RESERVATION IS MADE.

       

.

SPECIAL REQUESTS:

WE SOMETIME HAVE "SPECIAL REQUESTS" THAT RUN FROM ENGAGEMENT/MARRIAGE  PROPOSALS TO HAYRIDES, BIRTHDAY PARTIES, SCOUT COOKOUTS/CAMP OUTS, AND  COUNTRY MUSIC VIDEOS. IN JANUARY 2010, WE HAD A ROCK VIDEO SHOT HERE FEATURING THE GROUP MOTHER-FATHER.  WE'VE EVEN HAD A REALITY TV SHOW SEGMENT ON"3 DAY WEEKEND" ON TURNER SOUTH NETWORK FILMED HERE AT OUR STABLES.. IF YOU HAVE A SPECIAL REQUEST, WE CAN'T PROMISE YOU WE CAN PROVIDE IT,

BUT WE'RE WILLING TO DISCUSS THE POSSIBILITIES.

.

A JURO STABLES QUALIFIED RIDING INSTRUCTOR/TRAINER MUST ACCOMPANY ALL PAYING CUSTOMERS FOR,

* THE PROTECTION FOR BOTH THE RIDER AND THE HORSE.

*TO KEEP OUR CLIENTS FROM GETTING LOST.

*TO BE THERE IF ANY PROBLEMS ARISE.

*TO HELP ONE BECOME A BETTER RIDER WITH INSTRUCTION IF NEEDED

WE HAVE A SAYING AT JURO STABLES

IF YOU HAD A GOOD RIDE, & YOU DON'T FALL OFF, & YOU CAME BACK ALIVE, YOU CAN THANK US IN 2 WAYS, & THAT IS

KISS YOUR HORSE AND TIP YOUR GUIDE

 

WE ARE NOT THE TYPICAL RIDING STABLE WHERE ONE RIDES ONLY IN A RING ON A VOICED TRAINED SCHOOLED HORSE BEING TOLD WHAT TO DO BY THE INSTRUCTOR INSTEAD OF THE RIDER.

OUR GUIDES AND INSTRUCTORS TAKE OUR RIDERS OUT OF THE RING AND OUT ON THE FARM IN ANY & EVERY DIRECTION IMAGINABLE,

DEPENDING ON THE EXPERIENCE OF THE RIDERS, AND LEARNING ABILITY OF THE RIDERS, TO GIVE EACH RIDER THE EXPERIENCE OF LEARNING TO RIDE IN THE OPEN, AND RIDERS ARE ALLOWED TO RIDE AT A SLOW PACE OR A FAST PACE ACCORDING TO THE EXPERIENCE OF THE RIDERS AND THE AMOUNT OF INSTRUCTION THE RIDER HAS RECEIVED

TIPPING:

OUR INSTRUCTORS ARE ALL VOLUNTEER WORKERS, THEY START OUT THE DAY BY GETTING OUR HORSES READY,

TAKING OUT RIDES, & TAKING CARE OF THE HORSES AT THE END OF THE DAY, ALL FOR THE LOVE OF BEING AROUND HORSES.

THEY WORK HARD FOR THEIR EARNINGS & THEIR EARNINGS ARE MADE FROM TIPS FROM OUR CUSTOMERS.

IF YOU FEEL YOUR INSTRUCTOR HAS DONE A GOOD JOB, PLEASE SHOW YOUR APPRECIATION BY TIPPING ACCORDINGLY.

SUGGESTED MINIMNUM TIP IS $5 PER PER PERSON / RIDER.
