It’s Worth The Drive

My daughter and I have been driving over 160 miles round trip to ride at Spring Lane Ranch for close to a year now. Though there are quite a few choices closer to home, the facilities here are impeccable and the trainers are at the top of their game. Every single member of the staff at a Spring Lane makes us feel like we are a treasured member of their family. The owners actively put a great deal of heart and soul into this place and it shows at every visit. It is worth the trip every time.



We had the best experience

We had the best experience at Spring Lane Ranch as both Betsy and Mark worked with my Belgian mare teaching her to pull a cart in four weeks. Everyone was welcoming and took excellent care of my horse while she was away from home. Mark Wilson taught my horse a new skill and I am forever grateful.

Honest and Loving Horse Professionals

I have been in the horse business for 29 years and up until now I have never known truly honest and loving horse professionals like Heather and Betsy. I was told my horse had wobbles and wouldn’t be able to be shown and Betsy started training her and she is now perfect in every way. Betsy has gently turned her into a beautiful mover, her patience and love for the horses is bar none. My horses are in heaven. Thank you to all of the Spring Lane staff for creating such a fabulous training facility.

Kudos to Betsy McHugh

Kudos to Betsy McHugh at the Gaited Horse Judges Clinic for her observations and knowledge. She is so aware of so many nuances that I plan to be more aware of now.

The Lady And Her Horse: Dr. Anne Kerr Is an Aspiring Equestrian

“It is a wonderful athletic endeavor. I’ve studied ballet and attempted basketball, so I’ve always been athletic, but this is the most fascinating discipline. … There is something new to learn every time. The joy of partnering with a horse is incredible. Heather and the Spring Lane experts are a blessing…”
