Our stalls are 12'x12' panel stalls conveniently located next to the arena. We require the use of stalls for both day riders and overnight stays. If you're dry camping and prefer to use a portable corral or tie line (so that your horse is near you), you'll still need to pay the stall fee. This goes toward our costs for manure disposal, property maintenance, etc. Stalls are $20/day or night.
For example, if you're hauling in for a clinic on Saturday and Sunday (leaving at the end of each day), your stall fees will be $40. If you're staying overnight (arriving on Saturday), your stall fee will be $40. If you arrive late on Friday night for a Sat/Sun clinic, we don't charge for that day, so stall fee is $40. If you arrive early on Friday, your stall fee will be $60 (for three days).
What to bring for your horse
Bring your own water and feed buckets. If you forget, we can provide one, but we don't keep water/feed buckets in the stalls...we feel it's healthier if horses are NOT using buckets that have been left in the stalls. Initial shavings are in the stall, but if you like deep bedding, bring your own or we have additional shavings for purchase. Of course, bring your feed, tack, hay, etc.
We have LQ Hookups near the arena ($25/night). Hook-ups include water and electricity (30 amp service), but no waste disposal. We're only a few miles from the Harrison Bay State Park, so it's easy to pull into the park to dump your tanks.
If you'd like to dry camp ($10/night), we have areas around the property that are all within an easy walk of the kitchen and bathroom. You're welcome to pick your spot near the pond, in the trees, or near the arena depending on how much privacy you like and how near your horse you'd like to be.
We sometimes reserve a nearby (3 miles) vacation home (http://chattanoogaretreat.com/) for people to use during our clinics. It's a 3 bedroom house that can easily sleep up to 9 (more if someone brings an air mattress!), so if you need a place to stay during a clinic, contact us and we can help make arrangements.
The nearest hotel is Island Cove Marina. They have both rooms and cabins for rent.
We have a pond with several kinds of fish, so bring your fishing poles! We also have a small berm if you'd like practice some target shooting (berm is to be used ONLY with supervision)...or if you've thought about learning to shoot, talk to one of us about a lesson. Cindy is an NRA shooting instructor.
Restaurants, Grocery Stores, etc
We're only ~8 miles from a full size grocery store. We also have a feed store within a few miles and a Family Dollar...so if you forget something, you have some options. For nearby restaurants, we have Country Cafe and Kevin Brown's Burgers (closed Sunday), and Amigos..and then anything else you might like about 30 minutes away, either by driving into Cleveland, Ooltewah, or the Hamilton Place Mall area.
