What We Offer

With decades of combined experience in the horse industry, we provide the best services customized to meet your needs.  Contact us for more details on how we can serve you and your horse. 

Boarding

Sunset Willow offers full board for your horse(s).  At our farm, you don't have to worry about hidden costs for extras, like blanketing, flyspraying, feeding of supplements, or medication application.  Full board also includes holding for vet and farrier, so no need to worry about scheduling around your busy lifestyle!  Horses enjoy spacious, clean, and well-ventilated stalls, in addition to 12+ hours of turnout in beautiful, grassy pastures.  Geldings and mares are kept separate, and all horse handling is done by professionals.  Horses are dewormed according to fecal counts to minimize anthelmintic resistance.  As a Sunset Willow Boarder, you will enjoy the many amenities our facility has to offer, including lighted indoor arena, rider lounge and bathroom, spacious outdoor arena, stadium jumps, and indoor heated washrack with hot and cold water!  Full board rate is $425/month.

 

We also now offer Field Board, for those wishing to enjoy the many amenities the farm has to offer, while keeping their horse out on more than 7 acres of green pasture 24/7.  Horses on field board are fed once daily, provided hay when needed, have access to a large run-in shed and drink from an automatic waterer.  Field board is open to mares and geldings, at $275/month.

Lessons

Sunset Willow Stables offers riding lessons with Anne Morrison.  Anne specializes in Hunters and basic Dressage, and utilizes a positive, encouraging teaching style.  Lessons aim to promote safety, confidence, awareness, and empathy in riders, as well as a cooperative partnership and better communication between horse and human.  Whether your child is interested in taking riding lessons for the first time, you are an adult rider with a green horse, or a seasoned show competitor, Anne can help you fine-tune your position, increase your efficacy, and move up to the next level.  Lessons usually last between 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the needs of the horse and rider and the goals set for that day.  As a boarder you may take lessons on your own horse, or you may trailer in for a lesson and take advantage of what the facility has to offer!  There are also limited spaces available on a very safe, kind, and experienced school pony for young riders who do not own their own mounts .  We are excited to be in the process of growing this lesson program with more lesson horses, so please contact us for scheduling and availability.  Lessons with Anne are $60.  For students that are signed up for regular weekly lessons, they are discounted to $50.  A few bi-weekly spots are offered for $55.

Training

Sunset Willow Stables and Anne Morrison also offer training for a limited number of horses and ponies.  Anne has many years of experience bringing young horses along, starting them over fences, and introducing them to proper flatwork, as well as fine-tuning and schooling show horses.  While advancing training, Anne is sure to give young horses positive experiences so they learn to enjoy their job and confidently perform because they want to, not because they were forced to by training gimmicks or heavy schooling.  Cementing the concepts of forward, straightness, and balance, Anne believes in bringing young horses along slowly and incorporating work that will make the transition back to an amatuer or child smooth and seamless.  Training is $35/ride.  Monthly training and boarding is also available, please contact us for rates and availability.

Anne can help you evaluate, prepare, and effectively market your sales horse in today's competitive industry.  Anne represents quality horses honestly and with integrity, with her greatest goal being to create a good match and a lasting, loving home.    She can also help you find your next equine purchase.  Let Anne sort through the thousands of sale ads for you to help find the right horse to meet your needs!  Contact for details and rates.
