News from The Stables

Meet Simba. 

Simba is a Spanish Mustang. He is a buckskin color and a gelding. Simba has a strong constitution and great feet, which is really important for horses. Simba has a sweet personality and is great with the kids. Simba is an intuitive animal, and once he gets to know someone, he can intuit how they are feeling, and he reacts accordingly. You may not believe that but if you rode him often, you would get it. Simba can relax himself to the point that he can fall asleep fully saddled while waiting for his mount in the arena, so you always want to announce as you approach, just in case he is dreaming. However, Simba does not fall sleep when he has a person sitting on his back (he’s intuitive, remember.) Simba loves a daily head rub on his forehead. While he likes treats such as apples and carrots, he would much rather have physical affection. When he has down time and play time, you will find him rolling in the sand in the arena, just to get good and dirty, while giving himself a full body massage. If you’ve never witnessed this activity, you should; it will make you smile. Come to the stables and donate a snack of raw sweet potatoes, apples or carrots for the horses. Call today to schedule your next visit or ride: (706) 692-6322. See you on the trails!
