Heather Boodey, owner & trainer, has been a part of the Saddlebred industry since childhood. After she took over her parent's business in 1991, she has had lots of success, including several World Champions and countless wins at horse shows across the Southeast. Located just a short drive from Raleigh, Wake Forest, and Durham, they offer lessons (for riders ages 3 and up), Summer Camps, and other Holiday Camps. They will often have Show & Lesson Horses for sale that you can trust will be exactly what you need for your rider!
