Sweet Meadow Stable is a ranch- style property established in 1996. The facility was the first of it's kind in the beach area to offer natural equine based programs for adults and children and is still going strong 26 years later.
Agritourism at it's finest, the farm is the beach area's only facility offering complete animal programs that teach everything there is to know about horses and other animals in a complete and natural way.
The stable is unique as it is the only farm infusing natural horsemanship (horse whispering) into all aspects of it's equine programs. While its common practice for people to climb on top of a horse in their first lesson at other stables, Shelley believes is more beneficial for students to start with a ground-up approach thus earning a deeper trust, understanding and develop leadership skills with the large animals.
Taking the time to understand equine body language, practicing the basics of proper grooming, proper leading and ultimately earning a horses respect on the ground is the goal before ever sitting in a saddle. Shelley believes learning this way lessens physical accidents later and allows a deeper understanding on why horses do what they do.
