We said goodbye to Dixie on Monday, 12/13/2022. Dr. Ramos came and helped her across the Rainbow Bridge. Dixie had horrible laminitis and would not let anyone touch her feet. We had four different vets and three farriers look at her and everyone told us she was destined for a life of lameness and pain. In the end, she didn’t even want to stand up, so we made the difficult but humane decision to let her go. We will see you on the other side Ms. Dixie!
JMJ Horse Show Was a Huge Success!
We took 8 different horses to show this year and 12 or so riders and the show was a huge success! We’re a non-competitive barn so we weren’t “in it to win it,” but our riders all performed admirably and made great memories and learned a lot! Big thanks to J.J. Joyner for putting together this year’s show!
We Have Moved to a New Facility!
After 16 years at our home in Santa Teresa, we have moved to a much larger facility just up the road! Our new facility is on a 15 acre parcel and we’re building a 24-horse barn (twenty-four!!), a competition-sized arena (250′ x 150′) and much, much more!
All of our lessons are now held at the new facility! See below for driving instructions!
Our new home is a 12 minute drive from our old place. And, if you take the freeway to visit us, the driving time should be the same or SHORTER!
Our New Address is:
200 South Tierra Vista
(The “South” is important)
Anthony, NM 88021
The facility is located off of Koogle Rd., which is off of McNutt (Hwy 273).
Important: this is a NEW address to Google, Bing and Apple. Some GPS services will not know how to find this address.
Directions from I-10:
- From I-10 E or W, take Exit 8, Artcraft Rd.
- Turn West (drive past Rudy’s BBQ, away from the Shops at Artcraft).
- Travel about 3 miles on Artcraft to McNutt Rd.(aka Highway 273). Turn Right. (It’s the third stoplight – Upper Valley, Westside Dr., then McNutt)
- Travel about 2 miles down McNutt to Koogle Rd. Turn Left.
- Go all the way up Koogle until the pavement ends (about 1 mile). This is Tierra Vista. Turn Left.
We’re on the right, about 500 feet down the road. We’ll see you at the barn!!
Statement on The Coronavirus / Covid-19 Pandemic
We take the Coronavirus Pandemic very seriously. We are NOT, by any means, anti-maskers. However, since the activities that we conduct all take place outdoors, we have decided NOT to require our instructors to wear masks. Instead, we all practice responsible social distancing, we have hand-sanitizer available at the faucet and we limit the number of people in attendance to one adult per child.
Even before Covid-19, we always sanitize all of our helmets after every use, and we wipe down all of our horse tack with an anti-bacterial agent after each use.
Our ADA-compliant portable restroom is available for clients to use, and it is also equipped with hand-sanitizer.
Thank you to all of you who attended the Sunland Park City Planning and Zoning committee meeting on January 9th, and a huge shout out to those of you who stood up and spoke on our behalf.? It was incredibly humbling to hear the heartfelt things that were said about us. We are tremendously blessed to have such wonderful clientele and we are motivated to work even harder to help you and your children learn to ride and learn to deal with the challenges that life throws us.
For those of you who do not know:
The Planning and Zoning Committee, with support from The City of Sunland Park, granted us both a Special Use Permit and a Large Animal Variance so that we can keep additional animals on the premises and, thus, apply for a formal business license from the city.? This is the first, and biggest, step in the process of being able to accept insurance for some of the services that we offer. We can now apply to Medicare and, once Ms. Kimber and Ms. Sarah have completed their BCBA licensure, be an established Behavioral Health Agency in New Mexico.Have
