Appaloosa Acres barn

Appaloosa Acres
LLC was established in 2005 with potential as a show, boarding or rescue barn but primarily
to function, at that time, as a rehab facility for Titan, our retired Belgian hunt horse, suffering from resistant canker
and owned with John Gray who was in residence at the farm for many years.

It is now still home to a successfully cured Titan and his very diverse herd including Buck - our Appaloosa for
whom the farm is named.

It is also now home to Bert and Angela Gates of Gates Practical Horsemanship
and their family.

Bert is an experienced John Lyons Certified Trainer with a great training touch and he and Angie are training
horses in-house and giving lessons at Appaloosa Acres.
Many of our own horses have benefited from their expert training ability and horse knowledge


Melanie Mitchell is also available for Dressage and English riding lessons and Appaloosa Acres will be offering
clinics, educational seminars, special events and shows throughout the year.

Contact us for your birthday parties, weekend getaways and other special events in a beautiful, relaxing country setting. Lovely cottage available by reservation
for single persons or couples looking for quiet country getaways. Also available for incoming participants at horse events.

Lynda and Buck have taken up the sport of Ranch Sorting. Buck fell in love with it immediately at his first practice where he was introduced to the cows by veteran rider Cliff Chancey. Buck is totally confident with the cattle, pushing them with his nose when they won't go and guarding the gate fearlessly. It seems he has found his calling :-).
