The Horse Boarding - Hay Shortage Dilemma

This past spring drought has really caused havoc on our Michigan Hay Crops! 

Farmers are reporting a yield that is 1/3 to 1/2 of their normal crop and for some the 2nd cutting was almost as bad. Because the hay farmers had to cover their own needs, many small stables were not even able to get their usual season order filled!

(Some stables have put a freeze on boarding because of the lack of hay)

Kid's Kamp!

Horse’ N Around Stables, Inc. has had many inquires from seniors looking to continue their passion for horseback riding. Whether they had sold their steed, it sadly passed on, or their thoughts were just “I’m too old for this & don’t have the time or money to be the owner of my own horse”.

We already have many seniors and retirees (some in their 70’s) that have been coming out for years to enjoy riding the trails. We’re a tight knit group. These folks come out to ride our horses without the work or financial burden that comes with owning a horse.

We are now ready to offer a wellness choice that is practical and affordable for the older horse lover. We call it our Silver Saddles Program. Read below and see if it's the right fit for you.

If you fit this category of older experienced riders, text the words

"silver saddles"

to Sherri and she will give you a call back to talk about the program.

(remember - she may be doing Barn-Stuff so be patient with the call back)

All of our rides are Guided.

24 hour notice for any reservation changes, cancellations or late arrivals is mandatory. Our rides leave the barn ON TIME. We will NOT hold up a ride for late arrivals as this would not be fair to our On-Time guests! You MUST arrive a minimum of 20 minutes BEFORE your ride time (at least 30 minutes for groups of 7 or more). There is No Refund for no-shows or late arrivals.
Weather is always a factor considered for refunds. We cannot operate in thunder & lightning.Any rescheduled ride granted must be used in the same year it was recieved.
The best form of communication is texting. We only have 1 phone line and we are trying our best to address any calls.


any failure to comply to reservation terms forfeit their deposit & or fee's paid if their reservation time slot has been canceled. Leaving this time slot unable to reschedule.


By electronically signing & dating on line, you are accepting & agreeing to the terms & policies of your reservation.

Like a Dr. Or Dental appointment, or salon appointment, it is imperative that we operate on time, no exceptions.

It is your responsibility to be ready, these rides must operate on time, if for any reason anyone in your party is going to cause a delay, the ride will be canceled.


this time is mandatory, we guarantee 1 full hour for your ride. WE CAN NOT ACCOMMODATE LATE ARRIVALS

It is your responsibility to make sure weight requirements are true & accurate, along with age & height requirements.

They MUST be able to communicate. Failure to do so in English will forfeit their ride. This is for their safety.

You may have to mount one of these

True and accurate weights are extremely important. Our maximum weight limit is 240lbs, however, not ALL of our equines can accommodate a 240lbs person. They too have their own individual weight limitations, therefore YOUR ACCURATE WEIGHT IS IMPERATIVE.

Ex: If you make a reservation stating you are 170lbs we will have an equine for you that can accommodate 170lbs, but when you arrive and are actually 200lbs we may not have an equine available for you and we will NOT exceed our equine's weight limits, therefore, if your weight is more than you claimed it to be you will forfeit your ride and there are NO refunds.

Boarding at Horse’ N Around Stables, Inc.

We operate at both, Pinckney & Waterloo Recreation Parks horseback riding stables. We can ride from the Pinckney location to Brighton Recreation Area and we can ride from the Pinckney location to the Waterloo Recreation Area as well, so there is plenty of riding available! 


We reside at the Pinckney facility during the off season, November through April and then we move all of the stable’s equines to Waterloo for the riding season, May through October. Waterloo has so much more to offer in perks and riding. However, we have had some boarders leave their horses at the Pinckney facility. 


Some boarders choose to do chores 1 day a week {1½ hours) for a reduced board of $310.00 per month. Some boarder’s jobs, or home location don’t allow them to participate in the weekly chores. 


Both facilities have 13 pastures and paddocks. There are also a portable toilet, microwave, toaster oven and refrigerator to use. 


There is plenty of shade, run ins, shelters and stalls. There are water hydrants throughout the properties for convenience. 


Board includes am & pm grain, hay huts for 24/7 hay availability, and lunches on an as needed basis. There is a tack room for boarders for your personal items. 


Inoculations & worming must be on the herd’s schedule to control the spread of illness, disease, and parasites. 


You may use your own farrier & veterinarian or you may use the barns. We don’t offer indoor and outdoor board. The herd is out! Every equine will be inside a stall, run in, or lean too when it is below 20°, freezing rain, or during dangerously low wind chills to get out of the elements. 


Outside equines are healthy equines, however, offering comfort and safety is our mission. 


I have a degree in equine sciences, and served a 5 year internship working in equine emergencies for a veterinarian. I was formerly the barn manager for Michigan’s largest 501 C3 rescue for 12 years and responsible for over 100 equines. 


My husband works for a large animal feed store and is very educated in equine care and nutrition. 


Many of my boarders have been with us for more than 12 years. We are a no maintenance, no drama group that loves to get together and ride. 


I have 42 equines, 10 of which are boarders. You won’t be able to pick out which belong to boarders, which are the stable equines, and which are my own personal equines. This is because ALL OF THE EQUINES ARE FED, TREATED & LOVED EQUALLY. EVERY BOARDER HERE TREATS EVERY EQUINE AS IF THEY PERSONALLY OWNED EVERY ONE OF THEM.

With the current hay situation

Are you worried about your horse having enough to eat while being boarded?

Below is a picture of some of the hay we have in stock - YES, we have plenty more!

In fact - our boarders horses (and our own horses) have access to fresh hay 24/7!!

If you board with us you can be assured your horse will have all the hay it will need

to keep warm in a Michigan Winter and year round.

Below is the Thompson family from their ride in 2022. They have been joining us every summer for years here at Horse N Around Stables, Inc.


The Thompson family gets bigger & bigger each year. 3 of the grandchildren recently turned 6 and were able to join in on the ride. In a nut shell, 3 kids are 12, 1 is 11, 1 is 10, 1 is 8 and the grand finale 3 just turned 6 .

With us being the only riding stables that goes all the way down to 6 yrs of age, I can't tell you how happy I was to hear there are 2 more that are 4 years old, so this is something we’ll all be looking forward to in 2 more years. This is a special treat that grandma and grandpa do every summer  with their grandkids. And grandma and grandpa also help wrangle during the ride! What a gas!

Horseback Riding in Michigan

We started Horse' N Around Stables, Inc. well over 20 years ago with one thing in mind, our love of equines.  After all these years, our passion for these magnificent creatures has grown into something more, and we want to share our love with you.


Nearly all of our equines were rescued from abuse, neglect or surrendered.  They have been re-habilitated by Sherri Richardson herself, a lifelong equine owner.  Sherri does this not as an occupation, but a passion in her life.


Come visit Horse' N Around Stables, Inc. at Waterloo or Pinckney for an experience you'll never forget.


"Equines are like people, they each have a personality of their own".  Come meet one that you'll call a friend after only an hour.


Come see why CBS Detroit ranked Horse' N Around Stables, Inc. at Waterloo and Pinckney both TOP THREE places in Michigan to ride equines.
