Liz and I thought long and hard about what to call our stables, but settled on Happy Horse. It's simple and sums up what we're about.
Our mission is both to offering riding and animal welfare education. We will do this through mounted and unmounted horsemanship, horse management, equine psychology, and fun horse related activities.
Just as we believe in getting horses out of the barn, we believe in getting riders out of the ring. We have a very large round pen, a paddock and are adding trail park elements. We have already started construction on a small network of on property trails so riders and horses are better educated to various situations.
We think our cost will be about 60,000 won for 45 minutes to an hour and should be able to accommodate riders up to 95 kilos, approximately 210 pounds.
I myself am a larger rider and we will be able to accommodate larger riders because we have large horses. Nevertheless, everybody is a thoroughbred so they're not as stocky as a warmblood or draft cross.
