okay...so apparently I have been totally slacking on my Stone Oak Stable posts...sorry everyone. Life has been so busy, which is a great thing. Horses and student are continuing to improve by leaps and bounds around here. To say I am proud of each and every student would be an understatement. Their commitment to riding this summer was incredible... it was hot and humid and they still managed to ride almost daily. I have so much to share so I will catch up this page this week. As for now...its nice and chilly outside so I am going to ride! Have a great day everyone!

War Academy is seriously the best!

Today he helped a rider learn to keep her rhythm and to accurately steer while posting and trotting.
I should add that it was chilly and really windy this afternoon as well.
He is loving life and is one happy horse!
He just loves the girls coming into the barn after school and making a fuss over him. He is one very special horse!

Good morning everyone! Just wanted to share how great Private Tale (PT) seems to be doing in his new home. Jillian said he handled the high winds this weekend like a pro!! While we all miss him around here we are happy to see him doing so well and adjusting to his new home. Hope everyone has a great Monday!

Yesterday was Private Tale’s Birthday! He had a great day getting in a fun evening ride and some apples! Thank you Jilia...

The current thoroughbreds at Stone Oak Stable this season.
Lideris, Private Tale and War Academy.

Each of these special guys has a story and an adventure (to say the least) on how they arrived here at our farm in Haymarket, VA.
They are all doing very well and seem to be loving life and loving the start to their 2nd careers.

We here at Stone Oak Stable couldn't be more proud and happy to be a part of such an amazing network of people who are committed to saving the lives and transitioning horses off the track to their next career.

For more information on how to donate or sponsor one of our horses please message us here on FB.

We are sorry I haven't updated everyone in a while. We have been very busy around the farm trying to get things finished in the "new" barn and working on getting a date so that horses can move in. We are doing most of the work ourselves with the help of some amazing neighbors and friends!

All the OTTB's are doing really well.

- Lideris continues to learn daily and loves cantering jumps. -- War Academy has been a rock star for a neighbor who loves to ride and teach him to "smile" for a treat.
- Private Tale is steady gaining weight and loving getting groomed by our newest volunteer! We are hoping to be able to ride him within the next week.
If you live close and want to volunteer please let us know, there is plenty of things to do around here.
We are so thankful for our supporters both near and far.
We will post some pictures this week so check back in with us soon.

Private Tale "PT" had some new shoes put on! You know what that means...... in just about a week or so we will start riding him!! So far he has a great personality, we are hopeful he will be the same under saddle!

Transformation Tuesday
Private Tale "PT", is a 9 year old TB who has had 50 starts.
He was retired from racing because of some amazing people but due to the negligence of the place/person where he was sent he then faced his biggest struggle yet.

He was not fed or given basic care... it's just that simple... he was starved/ neglected.
In Less then 3 weeks he has dramatically improved. He still has lots of weight to put back on (this picture makes him look really good) but he will be back to his ideal weight in no time. He is a fighter! Thank you to everyone who donated toward his recovery... it is making a difference.
Food, care, shelter.... its that simple.

Shame on the person/ "rescue" that took money from people to feed and care for this horse and just didn't do it!

Well almost 48 hours ago a TB racehorse arrived at Stone Oak Stable.
This horse has raced close to 50 times and was retired.
He was placed in a "rescue" and was thought to be safe.
Well... it turns out he was far from safe.
This poor horse is easily 300 pounds under weight with a body score of 3 out of 10.
He is struggling to keep hope alive and fight for another day.....

I need your help.

While we are missing one of our favorite horses tonight... we are so happy he has found his forever home.

Congratulations to Andrea Lukonis on her adoption of Valid Concept!!
Stone Oak Stable is so happy with this match of horse and rider.
We couldn't have dreamed of a better home for "Valid".

He's a horse w/ 55 starts that passed his vetting this morning and will transition into his second career as a trail / pleasure horse. What a great life he we will have❤️
He adores Andrea and her treats and seems to be loving his new home.
Tons of grass and hundreds of acres to ride out on and a pet pig!!

Here a picture of Valid Concept meeting Andrea's daughter at his new home for the first time today.. and a picture of Andrea riding Valid Concept and of course the pet pig!

Congratulations Andrea on an amazing horse who was worth the wait!!
We can't wait to see what the future holds for you two!!
Now time to save and restart another one!

Stone Oak Stable is a 501 (c)(3) that gladly excepts donations and sponsorships. Check us out and learn how you can help these amazing and deserving horses.

TGIF from Stone Oak Stable.
Remember this weekend and early next week people and businesses will be letting off fireworks.
We like to keep our guys inside until the fireworks are over and we "ear pom" them as well. We are located at the bottom of a mountain and the echoes can be very loud.
Stay safe everyone!

Stone Oak Stable- TB aftercare and lesson program

Stone Oak Stable 501 (c)(3) is a registered non profit. We specialize in the aftercare of Off the Track Thoroughbreds (OTTB’s). We help retire, retrain, and rehome!

In addition to helping horses off the track, we also offer riding lessons and packages. We are a small private farm that offers one on one lessons. We teach not only mounted but unmounted lessons as well. We also love our volunteers so if you have the time and want to come help us out we would love to meet you.

As a former United States Pony Club graduate Liz encourages her students to know how and why to wrap, blanket, clean a stall and know how to clean tack...as well as many other things around the farm. Liz is a USDF 3 time Second Level-Dover Medal recipient and has competed in hunters, jumpers, dressage and eventing. Liz specializes in starting and retraining horses/ponies. Liz has been accepted and attended the Retired Race Horse Project (RRP) in Lexington KY in 2018 and 2019 and plans on attending again this year (2020) with 2 OTTB’s! Liz still actively competes and is looking forward to a great 2020 season.

Liz has been riding and teaching for over 25 years. Liz has also recently been the DC of a Pony Club in Hawaii and has volunteered for Pony Club as an instructor since 2001. Liz believes knowledge is power and with horses you can never have to much “power.” As a military spouse Liz understands how important it is to have a safe place to come ride and learn and this is what we provide here at Stone Oak Stable.
