Our Facility
Our barn is the High Point Equestrian Center. We have been here since October 2011. We have access to a large indoor arena for classes during our sometimes rainy weather and at night. In the summer we can use a large outdoor arena.  The property is next to Orange Gate Park, a 160 acre park designated as no motorized vehicles.  In the summer we are able to include trail rides during our sessions.
Andrew crossed the Rainbow Bridge June 18, 2013 to meet up with his barn buddies and pasture pals.   He loved his job as a therapy horse for Equest Special Riders for 12 years and that love and spirit remained until the end.   He left us with great dignity - gently, quietly, and quickly.   Andrew will be missed by so many people who's lives he crossed and who returned the love and friendship.  Linda Williams was blessed to be his Mom for the last five of his 34+ years.
As student, Tate always liked to say he was "King of the ring"
