Equine Kingdom Riding School's New Location

We completed the relocation to 5016 Groometown Road, Greensboro, NC, on November 10, 2009.
The property is adjacent to the Seasonal Comfort building, so look for the sign on the way in.

It has been a lot of work getting the place ready, but the location and facilities will be good for everyone. Someday Matt and I will have our own property and a permanent home for my horse riding lessons and his dog training school (and maybe kennels), but for now we have to make the best of the situation. The owners of these facilities (Seasonal Comfort) have graciously offered to renovate the barn, while the conditioning of the grounds is up to us. It will be a tight schedule, but we will be ready to move the horses on November 10th. Thanks for your understanding and willingness to make the move with me.

Sincerely - Sally

Lessons and training has ensued at Equine Kingdom now for nearly 5 1/2 months. We've added two new members to the herd, Snickers and Ginger. Both of them are in training and used in lessons. Mystique has begun teaching lessons again as well, which puts Equine Kingdom at 6 lesson horses! All the horses have survived a harsh winter, albeit having lost a few pounds, but are well on their way to being fat and sassy again with new grass growing in. The pasture has been split up to make several new pastures, to make rotation possible. The newly finished riding arena has served its purpose well - other than being perpetually mushy and muddy from November to the beginning March, due to all the rain and snow!
