As the owner and operator of Strouds Creek Farm, I strive to offer horse boarding services with the care and quality I expect for my own horses. I grew up in New York and spent much of my life at the local horse stable. During my youth and early adulthood, I dreamed of the day I could own my own horse. Twelve years ago I relocated to Hillsborough, North Carolina and was able to achieve my dream of buying a 20-acre farm and my first horse. I have added two more horses to my family. The youngest of my three daughters has caught the horse bug and is a responsible horse owner and caretaker. 

I have a love and passion to care for horses. With the abundance of space on my farm, it is a natural service to offer to others. Horse Boarding at Strouds Creek Farm includes:

  • 100 - 180 fenced riding arena

  • Access to run in sheds - shelter when your horse wants it

  • New horse safe fencing in all paddocks

  • Stalls available for all boarding horses

  • Barn with comfortable sitting area

  • Separate feed and tack rooms

  • Access to trails and free space

  • Beautiful, quiet location

  • Stress-free environment, with NO drama



Horse riding lessons at Strouds Creek Farm is a guided experience that includes lessons in animal husbandry (the care of farm animals), tacking up (equipping a horse with accessories), and proper mount and control of the animal. Each stage of horse-riding lessons is dependent on age and prior experience.
