We take pride in keeping the horses in a natural environment so they can thrive in the ways they were created to do so! Always outside, with free roam of the pastures. Shelters, food, water and loose minerals always available so they are able to think and make independent decisions based on their current needs to maintain a healthy and happy mind, body and spirit.
Here at Serenity RIsing, we firmly believe building a relationship with a horse and gaining a mutual respect for each other is an important step to great horsemanship. Utilizing our 170 'x 110' sand arena and our 60' round pen is a great way to get to know your horse, how he/she thinks and what steps to take to accomplish all of your goals! Finding creative ways to stimulate your furry partners brain and learn what they enjoy to do and how they react to all sorts of scenarios.
Once again, we want our horses to thrive. Many don't realize that horses have an incredible ability to adapt to the cold. Easier on them than the hot summers! The anatomy of the horse is an incredible thing to learn about. They are very complex and can generate a LOT of internal body heat just by eating hay and moving around. The hair on their body will actually change directions and move depending on how they are generating heat, where they need to cool down and where they protect from wind. Putting on a blanket (Any size, type or weight) limits them from being able to naturally adapt to all temperatures and restricts them from controlling and regulating their own heat.
A layer of snow actually acts as a layer of insulation and helps keep them warm while their beautiful coats and natural oils protect their skin from them wet and cold!
With 76 aces of property, we have many options to ride. There are trails around the exterior of the paddocks that connect to other trails through the back forest, fields and hills of the property. Our property reaches from the 3rd line, right back to the 2nd where you can ride down backroads and have permission from some farmers around to enjoy their fields!
