WHO ARE WE AND HOW DID WE GET OUR NAME?
Blue Wave Stable got it’s name from my daughter Shea’s horse Cool Blue Wave. Cool is an incredibly sweet, beautiful, smart minded, Blue Roan Paint. While I have owned horses on and off for the past 40 years, we started our own boarding stable in February of 2009. However it was December 2010 when we were blessed with the opportunity to acquire the lease on the adjoining property that tripled our acreage and stall capacity. . that made my dream of having a family run stable go from a childhood dream to an achievable opportunity.
In my minds eye I can see a stable where horse lovers and their friends can come and feel at home. A place that is low stress, relaxed, clean and safe for our children. A place that gives the children the freedom of space and being outside yet adult supervision is intact. A place that is fun and filled with positive calm yet assertive energy all rolled into one. A Stable where all the horses, boarded or otherwise are cared and loved as if they were our own. A place that is unique in that the golden social policy is to never speak unkindly about the horses or people while on the property. A very true and honest heartfelt attempt to achieve a drama free barn. I truly believe it is obtainable!
Blue Wave Stable boards horses, provides English and Western horseback riding lessons, guided trail-rides and has a work to ride program. We are non-competitive stable. Our focus is through education and practice we can pass the gift of gaining the respect and control of horses first on the ground then the saddle by using natural horsemanship techniques. We very much focus on riding for fun and in doing so we provided additional services including but not limited to0 birthday parties, cookouts, trail-rides, clinics, camps, weekend trail-riding/camping…you name it…if the fun involves horses we are interested. Give us a call and let us see if we can accommodate your horse desired request.
Blue Wave Stable is a proud supporter of Healing Horses. We have adopted several horses. Please stop by and meet and meet our horses. Any donation is much appreciated. If you are considering purchasing a horse, please consider adopting. You can find plenty of available horses on the Healing Horses Facebook website.
We are a young business and we would very much enjoy meeting you. Feel free to stop by and see if you do not agree that we have a very friendly relaxed approach to enjoying the whole experience of riding and caring for horses. I believe our herd is in on it too. Visitor’s often comment on the calm demeanor of our horses. Come out and see if you don’t agree.

The Blog roll the right has URL buttons to different website locations that maybe helpful for you. Below is a weather link to help you plan your outing. We only ride when weather conditions are conducive to safe riding for the horse and rider.
We will reschedule all planned events if it is raining or if the ground is excessively saturated or if it is to hot or cold. If it is under 32 degrees over 89 degrees we will reschedule. Horses can suffer heat stroke but are less likely to if they are left to their own devices. Horses will head to the forest and drink plenty of fresh water. Please call or text if you are unsure.
