He loves his treats and makes sure everyone knows where his cookie jar is!
Barn Manager, Trail Guide & "Littles" Instructor
The heart of our barn, Madison has been with us since early 2022. In addition to ensuring fantastic care of our equine staff, she excels at patiently working with our "little" beginning riders. She's also an enthusiastic trail guide, and is always there when we need her; a very important part of our IHS family!
Ms. Donna is the personal assistant to Ms. Sudie, the IHS event organizer, bookkeeper, and chief bottle washer. She always has a smile for you and the kids love her! So if you are looking to organize an event, she is your lady.
