Meet Our Horses!

The staff of the Stables would like to introduce you to the resort’s four legged employees. Our herd of horses each have their own personalities, but all of them are well-mannered and have fantastic work ethics.  Before a horse is brought into The Stables, it is judged on its gentleness and calmness. Each of our horses are given two years of training to get ready for our guests. We only employee those horses that can do the job and that display a trustworthy nature.
