Gentle Touch Stables

About the Stables

Since 2002, Gentle Touch Stables has specialized in training riders and horses for the Show Hunter discipline. We offer private and group lessons, a leasing program, and boarding for privately owned horses.

Gentle Touch Stables is a 32 stall barn with rubber mats throughout. We have two tackrooms: one in the barn for the lesson program and a separate building with individual lockers for boarders.  There is one large jumping arena, a small ring roughly 20x40 meters, and a round pen for riding, all of which are lighted. Two washracks are available, one of which has hot water. Horses receive daily turnout.
