Meet Rider/Owner/Trainer Carly Hurrell pictured above left on past show mount Trademark and right on a competition horse during the IBHF World Cup in Shanghai, China.
We are a versatile pleasure, show & training facility that competes regularly in both English and Western disciplines. We have a small breeding operation that focuses on quality NOT quantity and are constantly striving to provide the best care for our boarders and training horses.
We are located in Dunnellon, Florida on a quiet dead end road adjacent to the Goethe State Forest which offers us 120 miles of marked horse trails. Merely 15 minutes from HITS, 25 minutes from Ocala, and 45 minutes from Gainesville.
We occasionally offer horses for sale and on consignment so feel free to browse our pages.
If you have any questions about breeding, training, boarding or whatever else that comes to mind please do not hesitate to contact us :)

Just A Horse
From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a horse," or, "that's a lot of money for just a horse".
They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent or the costs involved for "just a horse." Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a horse."
Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a horse," but I did not once feel slighted. Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a horse," and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a horse" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.
If you think it's "just a horse," then you will probably understand phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."
"Just a horse" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust, and pure unbridled joy. "Just a horse" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person. Because of "just a horse" I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.
So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a horse" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.
"Just a horse" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away from myself and the worries of the day.
I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a horse" but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being "just a woman."
