Meadow Creek Farm is a full service English riding stable offering training, boarding and leasing options. Our mission is to develop confident, well rounded equestrians by educating students with the knowledge to succeed in horsemanship. Our professional staff focuses on safety, the fundamentals of horsemanship and proper education both on and off of the horse. Students will have a complete equine experience.
We accommodate a variety of riders of any age with flexible scheduling to meet the demand of busy lifestyles. We will work with you to meet your goals, from a weekly lesson, preparing for the local hunter paces, or horse showing from schooling shows up to the “AA” circuit.

Kelly’s undoubtedly genuine love of horses and the passion she has for riding, comes across from the very moment you meet her along with a welcoming and easy-going personality that seems to put both riders and horses at ease. As the owner/operator of Picture Perfect Equestrian, Kelly pulls from her background as a competitor, instructor and trainer to provide a positive equestrian experience for all.
Kelly's focus is safety from the moment you walk into the barn. It may be teaching an adult how to properly lead a horse or a child how to give a treat. Horsemanship instruction starts from the very first lesson and continues to be an ongoing process whether its on the horse, on the ground or via text, she is always teaching.
