It is with great sadness that I have to share that we lost sweet Lacey last night. She passed peacefully. It’s been a rough week losing Hei Hei and Lacey within days of one another, and our sweet B kitty isn’t doing well, either (she is super old). Please keep us and the farm in your thoughts and prayers.

Camp is almost here! T-shirts are ordered (the design below is on the back!) Don’t forget to enroll your camper! 😁👍😍

Summer Camp was a huge success! We enjoyed all of the campers and had so much fun rescuing Terrence the Turtle, doing crafts, making over ponies, designing halter bling, riding, and so much more! Thank you to everyone who made this Summer such a blast!

And now...on to FALL!
First, the next WNC Schooling Show will be on Saturday, August 28th at Winding Creek! Please let us know ASAP if you would like to show! There are classes for all levels.

Second, DRILL TEAM will begin soon! Friday afternoons from 3-4 will be drill team practice days. We will be looking at a performance before the holidays. To participate in drill team, a rider must be able to walk, trot, canter and jump (minimum of crossrails) at a canter and in a group setting. No age requirement. We provide horses, and it is SO MUCH FUN. Practices are $25 each. Seriously a heck of a good time. This will be starting up the end of August.

Third, we are gauging interest in an after school horse club. Club would meet on Mondays from 4-6. Cost for club would be $20 per kid per week. Homework help and horse/farm activities with riding opportunities at least every other week. Open to all riding levels and grades K-8. If interested, please let us know. This would start in September.

YAY for a wonderful Summer, and looking forward to a fantastic FALL! :)

Hello, WCS family and friends! We are downsizing a bit and are looking for semi-retirement homes for some of our lovely ponies. They are all still rideable (some with maintenance). Care leases preferred. 🙂 Contact me for more information please. May consider paid leases or paid half leases on a few as well.

New Beginnings

We wish to extend a heartfelt thank-you to our WCS family! If you’ve ridden with us, been our neighbor, our friend...thank you! This move wouldn’t have been possible without you, and we love you all! We are finally feeling a bit more settled at our new location, and we re-opened this weekend for lessons. It was amazing to see how many of you made the drive to ride at the new place! We are so blessed and so grateful. To our new WCS families, welcome! We hope you’ll find in us a barn that feels like home. This has always been so much more than a business. It has truly been a family. If you’re in our neck of the woods, please visit! Each of you have touched our lives in incredible ways. Great things to come! MUCH LOVE, Christa and Kathryn and the Happy Horses of Winding Creek

MWB Attorney Murphy Horne Fletcher participated in her first Wnc Hunter Schooling Circuit Show Saturday at the Biltmore Equestrian Center. She did really well! See all those ribbons?! She was riding "Blue" from Winding Creek Stables. Blue has heterochromia and is named after his blue eye. Follow the link to read why Murphy loves riding and jumping horses. http://bit.ly/2zzWjcS
Happy Mother’s Day! No lessons today due to weather.
This place looks Awesome!
Are you doing lessons today? Is the arena dry?
I am super excited to lead a 1-Day Body, Mind, Equine Workshop at Winding Creek on Oct. 13. I hope you'll consider joining me. This is not just about doing yoga with horses this program, which I teach nationally is about how to use yoga principles to improve horsemanship from ground to saddle and become a more aware and conscious rider. Horses provided. All levels welcome ages 14 and up. We are about half full so reserve soon if you'd like to attend. http://www.cathywoodsyoga.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/New-BME-workshop-flyer-PDF.jpg
How about booking a private ½ hour for our granddaughter on July 12th? About 9 am? Jean Raleigh
