Gerry and Steph run an absolutely first class facility. They bring in nationally known and respected clinicians who do a wonderful job of improving horses and people. If I were ever to have the need to board a horse it would be at Happenstance. You will not find a facitlty that will be more attentive to the needs of you or your horse!!!
