The main barn is 60'x105' and includes an indoor riding arena, heated and air conditioned office and classroom, plus restroom facilities. Many programs are offered at the Equine Center. Visitors come for riding lessons or to be coached for showing, parades, or trail riding. They also attend seminars and clinics on all sorts of horse-related topics, led at times by clinicians prominent in the breed or the discipline.

Charity horse shows, 4-H and Girl Scout riding projects and therapeutic riding are done here regularly usingFeatures include a heated / air conditioned office & classroom  (13762 bytes) the center's horses and facilities.

Bill's main pleasure is in raising and training Hickory's Country Gold's offspring. Forty (40) horses with Indian Creek breeding have over 60,000 competition miles, and 20 horses have attained 43 National Championships. Twenty-two Indian Creek horses have passed the 1000-mile mark in competitive trail riding.
