and Jeanne have created an all-purpose Fox Trotter facility, possibly
among the country's largest and almost certainly the most varied in offerings.
It is called Indian Creek equine Center and is located
near Chillicothe, Missouri.
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.
shows, 4-H and Girl Scout riding projects and therapeutic riding are
done here regularly using
the center's horses and facilities. Assorted horse-requiring
entertainments are available at the center, such as carriage rides, hay
rides, and sleigh rides.
Owners may bring
their mares to be bred at Indian Creek to any of the stallions who stand there.
|| People also come
to buy horses trained to both saddle and harness.
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.
The riding area consists of gravel roads and pasture trails. Wildlife
abounds. It's easy to find us!
