Welcome! My name is Kristin, and I am the owner and instructor here at Sassy Stables. I started the business in 2010, soon after buying my Tennessee Walking Horse "Sonya" - who is pretty much the star of the show here. I grew up in Upstate NY and started English/Jumping lessons at the age of 9. We kept our horses at home so I learned at an early age how to care for and manage a stable. I also grew a love for Western style riding, and enjoy both riding styles on my horses either in the ring or on the trail. When I moved here to Greenville, I wanted to find a place where I could just "come out and ride" - and be myself. Not really a fan of the show world, I never appreciated the pressure and drama that came with that sort of atmosphere. I wanted to find a stable where people of all ages, disciplines and experience could come to learn and have fun, without the stress. I couldn't find that place - so I built it.
Why We're Different
Here at Sassy Stables, we want to bring people together with horses in a beautiful, fun and safe environment. We want to show you what a wonderful bond you can make with a horse, simply out of love and trust. Our mission is to provide a casual environment where everyone can feel comfortable to be themselves, and enjoy a real hands on experience. We pride ourselves and our horses on being very patient teachers. We are NOT a group lesson or boarding facility, which makes for a busy and stressful environment. We are a private, family owned stable, which gives us the unique ability to solely focus on you. Please contact us for availability, as we are by appointment only.
Meet The Horses
"Sonya" is the inspiration behind Sassy Stables. She is a solid black Tennessee Walking Horse Mare. She is the main lady on the farm, and does most of our children's and beginner rides!
"Chevy" is the spunky older gentleman of the farm. He is a 'Buckskin' Quarter Horse Gelding. He is best for a little more intermediate riding experience, as he has a sensitive motor!
Luna is the newest to the Sassy family! She is already the boss of the herd. She is a beautiful Palomino Quarter Horse and has wonderful ground manners and training.
