Here are a couple of visitors from Australia who rode with us today and for Andrea, it was her first time on a horse. Freckles took great care of her! Here's just 15 seconds of their ride today. Thanks for choosing to ride with us here at Glen Valley Stables. Happy travels, you two!
David and Angel are getting married in July. But first, they wanted engagement photos with horses. We were happy to oblige! The weather stayed dry (for the most part!) and they got some great shots. Thanks for choosing Glen Valley Stables for your engagement photo experience!
Here's a short, fun little video of a very fun spring break/early birthday present ride. Thanks for riding with us here at Glen Valley Stables!
It doesn't always rain or snow - and we have photos to prove it! It's been a tough winter for riding, what with all the inclement weather, but whenever it dries up there's no better time to get in the saddle. This is a photo of Freckles and Texas with two guests last weekend during a pleasant dry spell. We let the horses have a drink from the stream and snapped a photo. Love this life!
Here's a short video from yesterday of two brothers and a sister out for a ride on a beautiful snowy Sunday. The trails still have some snow on them (which is very pretty!) but it's not icy, making it perfect for a Sunday ride. The brother (on Freckles) and the sister (on Traveller) had never ridden before - they had a great first experience! That's Gene in the front on Annie, followed by Freckles, Texas and Traveller.
We've had a lot of snow around here lately, which has slowed our trail riding down but is very pretty! Our good friend, photographer Sally Rees, took this photo of the Campbell Valley Equestrian centre, where all our riders start their Glen Valley Stables' rides. You can see more of Sally's work on her website www.sallyreesphotography.com
All this snow isn't the best for trail riding but it's wonderful for taking pictures of the horses in the pasture. Enjoy!

We don't do a lot of riding in the snow - the snow balls up in our horses' feet and it's not always safe trailering them to the park - but we sure enjoy watching them out in the field. Here are a few shots from today of Freckles, Texas and Summer enjoying the snow... and the sun!
It's been a wet autumn! But every now and then we get a dry day and we're always happy to take people out for a ride. Here are a group of friends who came out to celebrate a birthday. It wasn't sunny but that didn't stop the smiles! Thanks for riding with us, ladies!
Here's where we share photos and memories of some of our guests and the horses they get to call their own for an hour or two. Saddle up!
