Following is a list of our permanent staff here at Urban Acres. They are all friendly and are here to help.
A great horse for the beginner through the advanced rider, this handsome guy is every mare's dream horse. While he's not breaking hearts he is tearing up the trail as part of the Urban Acres Endurance Racing team.
We provide miles of smiles!

There are few people in the world that can accomplish what Urban Acres can when it comes to horses. Communication between horse and rider is the main focus.
Boo Dog is his own man, and he has earned the right to be treated as such. He will gladly say hello, but his main focus is on patrolling the perimeter of the property, which he considers to be his own.
You can dramatically increase your chances of a successful horse purchase if you let Hope put horse and rider together. Most important is her ability to recognize, and mitigate, a horse's inherent risks.
Urban Acres teaches the fundamentals and allows each student to learn at their own pace. It also helps that our instructor Crystal rocks. We do Birthday Parties!!!!
Mr. Wiggle Butt is Hope and Crystal's personal security system. You will most likely find him firmly attached to one of their hips. His job is to clear the trail and warn them of anything out of the ordinary.

Closer to a sports car than a horse, Annie is sweet handling ride with a touchy gas petal, but all the good safety features (courtesy of Hope). Annie only has one eye. If you were to ask Hope if that is a concern, she would respond: no, because when you're on her she actually has three.
There are miles of legs on this horse. When flying down the trail she is as comfortable as she is beautiful. If you’re feeling lazy just sit the trot, relax, and let her do the work!
Hope is an expert farrier and her technique can carry a horse through a 50 mile endurance ride, without losing a shoe, while winning best condition.

Welcome to the world of Urban Acres. This is a place where humans and horses connect. Hope's place is unique in that the horses that are in Hope's care develop an ability to communicate concerns with the rider, and trust the rider's response and direction. The ones that have been here the longest are actually trained to train you. Hope has done incredible things here at Urban Acres. She is a full time equine professional and she has talents that are very rare and nothing short of extraordinary. Whether you are looking for purchasing advice, farrier services, or riding lessons centered on fundamentals and fun, you have hit the jackpot.
