Horseback Riding on Lake Fork

Horse Boarding

From full care stall boarding to self-care pasture boarding, we offer a wide variety of packages customizable to your horses needs. We also offer Retirement Horse Boarding for senior horses.

Horseback Riding

Looking to add a little fun to your Lake Fork vacation? We offer horseback riding geared towards beginners who want to have an equestrian experience while on vacation. We also offer horseback riding packages complete with accommodations.

Horse Training

Our onsite trainer, Susan Hammond, provides horse training for all breeds and disciplines of horses. We believe that horse training should be a team based process and will include lessons with the owner so that you know how to ride and continue your horse’s training once you’ve taken him home. 

Susan has experience in English and Western riding and can help you achieve your goals – whether that’s as simple as trail riding or in the competition ring. Susan has experience in the hunt field, eventing, hunters, jumpers, dressage, western pleasure and even roping.

What we do

Our Amenities

iFEed Automatic Feeders

Our iFeed Automatic feeding system ensures that our full care horses are fed consistently day in and day out, which reduces the chances of ulcers and colic.

Lighted Outdoor Arena

Whether it’s the Texas heat or the time change, sometimes it’s just nicer to ride at night! Our arena features 2 highpower LED lights providing that option!

Cabin Rentals

Visiting the area for a horse show, trail ride, or just passing through? We have 5 cabin rentals and 2 hotel rooms available for nightly rental. Book at StableViewCottages.com.

Horse Shows

Every year we travel to local schooling shows. While we specialize in English disciplines, all disciplines are welcome.
What Drives Us

Our Mission

Lake Fork Stables strives to provide the best care for our horses. Our horses enjoy 24/7 turnout with the option to come into the barn during the day to cool themselves under the fans or escape the weather. We feed Bluebonnet Equilene Complete, which provides maximum nutrition and roughage.
