Horse Boarding in Independence, MN. Owl's Nest Farms in Independence is a Heated Training Facility only 30 minutes west of Minneapolis MN with a Large Indoor Arena and dust free footing.
If you do not own your own horse yet, you can do a quarter, half and whole lease on one of our horses or pony to determine if you are ready to purchase a horse or pony for yourself.
Michelle Stephan offers stadium/cross country jumping, dressage and trail lessons. Lesson horses/pony are available if you do not own your own horse. Young kids are welcome.
We offer Boarding, Training, Leasing, Coaching, Trailering, and Lessons on Lesson Horses/Pony in a Fun and Comfortable Environment. We prepare horses/ponies and riders (adults/kids) to compete in Dressage, Three Phase Eventing and Jumpers. Three Phase Eventing (a.k.a. Horse Trials) includes the following three phases: Dressage, Cross Country and Stadium. Each horse/rider partnership has a personalized training program based on their goals. We are ready to take each horse/rider to their next level. We are a competitive show barn that has fun in a friendly and comfortable environment. Our horses and riders are competitive as well as happy. Our farm is 80 acres and set up as a training facility for horses and riders. Both horses and riders are athletes and have to work as a team to prepare for competitions.
We have a large 80' x 200' indoor arena that is heated in the winter and has air conditioning in the summer so we ride horses year round while practicing Dressage and Jumping skills.
Plenty of room for your horse and the ribbons as well.
The sand trail is almost 1.5 miles long and is used to condition our Three Phase Eventing horses and riders. We also use our trail to go on relaxing trail rides to ease horses' and riders' minds and enjoy beautiful sunsets. There is always time to breathe and enjoy the scenery.
Surrounded by big, beautiful oak trees is our x-large 100' x 300' outdoor arena with ag-lime footing used to practice jumping courses and combinations of fences and school Dressage movements
The beautiful cross country field offers multiple sizes and types of solid jumps to practice over on rolling hills and around large oak trees before competitions.
