News & Events
If you have been out to our barn, chances are you have seen how happy and healthy our horses are. Did you know that horses eat 2 percent of their body weight in hay a day? For many of our trail horses, that equates to about 25 lbs of orchard grass/alfalfa mix hay? We are proud to grow all our natural pesticide free grass, alfalfa and orchard grass/alfalfa mix at our sister company the DDot Ranch. Healthy hay, happy horses.
Wow, can you believe it already August? We are having a great summer here at Piping Rock full of trail rides, camps and jumping lessons. New to Piping Rock and want to learn a little more? Check out our trainer/wrangler Sam Bouchie's interview with Lake Tahoe TV.
With over 40 participants ages 6 through 60 for our western and english classes, it was definitely one for the books!
