Located on a 52-acre tree-lined farm, Stonewood Stables trains horseback riders of all levels and abilities in a professional and supportive environment. Aspiring jockeys can saddle up for a private lesson with one of the facility's experienced and passionate teachers. Tailoring each lesson to the student's needs and goals, the instructor doles out positive, effective riding pointers and advice on how to develop a more convincing cowboy persona. Equestrians training for show competition and fledgling Pegasus riders can gallop off on one of Stonewood's proven show horses in either the indoor or outdoor arenas.
With the distinction of Top Trainer from Today’s Equestrian, Heritage Stables, LLC owner Marc Harbers has come a long way since his days of training and growing up in the Netherlands. In his teen years, Marc began his pursuit of mares by working for a large show barn that allowed him to interact with more horses than it takes to fill a double-decker carousel. During this time, he developed the riding philosophies that he passes on to students today at his stateside facilities. His grounds house a large indoor ring and two outdoor rings—well-maintained spaces where Marc breeds champions by stressing balance and the importance of strong mental bonds.
