  1. Well. Not exactly. I know because we cut 18 trees the Sat of Thanksgiving in Spruce Pine NC and brought them back. (It pays for the gas to my inlaws and our tree!) BTW _ the tree farmer told me they start cutting in August for the box stores and put them in huge freezer warehouses!
  2. High Country Stables brings back trees from NC every year. Last week they had a couple of 8ft for $50 and 7ft for 45 - Fraser Fir? They are on 381 just north of New Hope past Rodneys...

  7. Hi there! Minimum age is around 5. That is about as young as we can go. The younger ones can come to our Mothers Morning Out on Wednesdays in December and ride... As far as discounts - the cost of the camp is the same as that of an hour lesson so it is already very inexpensive. However - since it is coming on the gift giving season :yahoo:we can probably give 10% on multiple family members. Thanks for asking! (Don't wait if you are interested though - these fun days really do fill up very quickly!) Miami http://highcountrystables.com

  12. If you hadn't noticed, we have been running a contest on Paulding.com and on our blog at http://highcountrystables.com for free tickets for four to our Fall Family Festival to be held Oct 17th. Unfortunately - we have apparently waited too late for this fall festival... and must postpone until Springtime. As much as we were looking forward to it - the weather is not cooperating with us! The forecast for Saturday is a high of 51! Plus we have had so much rain that the ground is just too wet for anyone to be on and not get soaked! We really don't think it would be a good idea to get kids and adults out in the pasture and play in the mud - especially when it was cold! However we are pleased to announce the winner of the 'Best Story' contest. And even though the winner can't bring the family to the cookout- we will award two full hour lessons instead! ($100 value) All of the entries were very good, and a few were exceptional - but the contest judges agreed the best written story was from Maureen Hallford and the prize is awarded to her for telling a very moving story, and writing it very well. Special mentions go to: Kathy Caniff, Josephine Lau, and Ginger In case you haven't had the chance to read it - here it is! Thanks for all the entries! And we look forward to a 'Spring' Family Festival... Mere Words Cannot Describe… by Maureen Hallford I've fallen in love…with a place where dreams blossom. A place and a people where your disability, affliction, or addiction can be freed. The smell of the barn, the sound the water, and the breeze on your face wrap every inch of your soul and body. To walk with horses by your side, to watch them run and roll in the pastures now covered with sand fills you with an uncommon found energy in your spirit. I love this place… Mere words cannot describe…how a dream came to life. As a small girl growing up in Wisconsin, I dreamed of a life with horses. But as most parents do…a childhood dream that was expensive wasn't one that was going to happen. With occasional trail rides and a year of lessons when I was 13 would have to do. Dream done…. After having two children I witnessed with my own eyes, the dreams and imagination of a child. I never knew what it meant to "live thru your child's dream," until my daughter blessed me with hers. There was a sense of completeness…fulfillment….calmness and love when she was able to ride her first horse. How sweet and innocent the love a child when they begin to breathe the dream. Mere words cannot describe…how God led us to this place. In search for a dream we hap haphazardly stumbled upon a place like no other. My daughter constantly talked about riding an Appaloosa. She had a picture of one in a book and pointed to it, "Mommy, what is this horse?" "That's what I want." The dream had a name. As we drove down the long drive to the barn, not knowing what we would find, and without an appointment, the dream began to live. Her name was Tessa, an Appaloosa Pony. How sweet the dream. Mere words cannot describe….how the blood rushes thru my veins and my soul breathes at this place. As I brush Callie, her eyes wide, watching me… I feel her warmth. The flick of her tail, the stomp of her hoof as she shoos away flies… I feel her speak. She is powerful and beautiful, yet gentle and loving. I have fallen in love…with this place and it's people. The dream lives here…at High Country Stables.
  13. Here was a posting for the contest on our blog at http://highcountrystables.com... Just two days left to get your story in! I have been a boarder at High Country Stables since Nov of 2006 and I can tell you now that I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else to board my horse Scout. The Phillips takes such good care of the horses and is the most loving family that you ever wanted to meet. Take Shelly Phillips for instance, she loves all the kids that ride at the barn and they love her back. She takes time to teach them how to take care of the horses and the responsibility that goes along with it. She is an excellent trainer and teaches you how to get the best out of you and your horse. When I first started taking lessons with Shelly, I had no confidence in myself or my horse. I was just plain scared to even get on Scout much less ride him. With Shelly patience and perseverance, both Scout and I grew both in confidence and trust and at our first horse show in May 2007, placed first in Equitation. Now how is that for someone who hadn’t shown in 14 years and was scared to death to ride her own horse. Scout and I have learned so much from Shelly and really look forward to taking our weekly Tuesday morning riding lesson with her. I learned that it is alright to make a mistake when riding as long as you keep trying and don’t give up on yourself or your horse. In fact, all the kids eagerly look forward to their lessons with Shelly and sometimes even come out to the barn just to spend time with the horses and her. Shelly & her family has worked with all sorts of kids in summer riding camps and all the kids keep wanting to come back and some don’t want to leave at the end of the day. That’s how much fun they have at the summer riding camps. Shelly is involved with the Paulding County saddle club and during the spring and summer; you can find her and her family at the Wildhorse Park in Power Springs, GA, with all of her students showing in any of the classes, from Beginning Jumping to Running Barrels. She has had students that have gone to the State Show in Perry, Ga. I could go on and on, why I love High Country Stables but all I know is, Shelly and her family are the most loving family and Scout has never had better care or treatment then what Shelly and her family has shown him. So if you looking to board your horse , or someone to train your horse, look no further than High Country Stables, where it is a fun place to horse around and your horse will get the best treatment ever.
  14. Wow. Great story! Thanks for sharing that. I think a lot of folks miss the personality part of the horses - and what amazing capabilities they have to teach us and our kids!
  15. Well - these guys are serious about wanting to come to the cookout! Three stories! Cool! Remember we are posting these over to the http://highocountrystables.com site as well. One more week or so and we'll be naming the winners of the four tickets to the festival... What is your horsey story?
