What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Owner, Shelley Gray, started Ivy Rock Farms 25 years ago with the goal to provide the highest quality of horse care possible and to create a facility that allows children & adults, from all walks of life, to enjoy horses safely, affordably and with excellent instruction.
What do you love most about your job?
Horses are my passion and I take great pride in how they are cared for and treated. These majestic animals deserve respect and a life that is as natural as it can be. Our goal here is to make our horses as happy as they make us.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Tears of joy! We had an older woman come to us for her first riding lesson. She had always wanted to ride as a child but never had the opportunity. At age 67 she finally made the leap and after her lesson was over, she just cried. She told us we had made her dreams come true.
