Spring is HERE ... finally.

Winter has surrendered to spring, bringing warmer days and nights. All the school horse 'team' is now getting tuned up for Spring Session. If you haven't signed up yet, check out the info on the Enrollment page of our website.

We LOVE our Crumb Rubber !

In October of 2007 Moccasin Lake Ranch purchased and installed 44,000 pounds of crumb rubber footing in the riding arena. This upgrade took place, primarily, for the benefit of our wonderful equine friends and teachers ... think of it as Nikes for horses! The new surface reduces joint stress, extending and improving the useful years of our horses. In additon, we have found that it extends our riding season by about a month in the late fall and allows us to start earlier in the spring. Look at this photo taken on the first day of Spring!

Spring is Coming !!

Welcome to the MVRU Blog! We are excited to use this BLOG to keep everyone up to speed on what's happening at Moccasin Lake Ranch. A few eager, hardy souls have been riding since February first, on those days when the arena is neither a skating rink nor a swimming pool! We are lookiong forward to getting all the horses in shape for spring riding classes. Moccasin Lake Ranch will open for private lessons on March 1st. MVRU Spring Session begins in April. Check the Enrollment page on our website for Spring Session sign-up info.
