Walnut Grove Stables



Have you ever had the desire to sail through the air on a horse's back, leaping jumps? At Walnut Grove Stables we offer lessons in hunt seat, also known as jumping seat. I strive to offer safe, fun learning experiences for the beginner to the advance hunter rider. WGS offers school horses for your convenience, or ship your own horse in for lessons. Walnut Grove is a full service boarding facility, if you prefer to have your horse on premise. Here at Walnut Grove, we have a dress code. I will be happy to direct you in your purchase of proper attire for riding with the Walnut Grove team!"
