    My daughter rode there for about 6 years and learned everything about horse care and both English and Western Riding. She went on to compete with her college IHSA Team at Nationals the past 2 years. Mailed Bennett and her instructors are amazing with the young people and horses.

    always goes over the top with pleasing the customer. And if your child wants to show a horse, Hidden Creek helps out with equipment.
