Black Oak Stables has a 200' x 75' indoor arena, with a heated viewing room wired with a PA system for auditing instruction in the arena. The stabling barns are next door to the indoor, and a short hack down a dirt road leads to Black Oak's two-acre grass field and sand dressage arena. Adjacent to the outdoor schooling areas is Bradley Palmer State Park, with miles of trails and cross-country obstacles.

Schooling at Black Oak Stables is arranged by scheduled appointment; please contact us to reserve use. Every year, release forms must be signed by every rider, and if the rider is a minor, by the adult responsible for the child. The fee for schooling is $20 per horse and rider, for each visit. The indoor arena is available year-round; please call for hours. The grass field is available mid-June through November, during daylight hours. The sand dressage ring is also open seasonally.

Alternatively, a monthly fee of $150 may be paid for use of facility. Release forms must be signed annually by every rider, and if the rider is a minor, by the adult responsible for the child.

Black Oak Stables is a private family barn. No new full-time boarders are being accepted. However, we welcome clinic attendees who would like to stable their horses at Black Oak during our clinics. Our stalls are spacious, we have a heated tackroom, and a hot and cold water wash stall. We provide water and initial beddding only. Please contact us for more information and pricing.
