Located in the unspoiled landscape of Covington, Georgia, the facility is just 30 minutes from bustling downtown Atlanta and 15 minutes from the International Olympic Horse Park.
Since 1970, the owners -- Bob and Barbara Samples -- have been involved in horses. The family has a history of owning and showing horses. It's always been a labor of love for the family and a whole lot of fun as well.
Barbara, her daughter Gail and her granddaughter Melissa have enjoyed showing for years. The winning history of their horses started with Gail's Palamino Gold Cadillac. Melissa's history includes Reserve Champion in Region XII of the International Arabian Horse Association with Fine Tuning, her half-Arabian chestnut mare.Wins include categories such as Halter, Western and English.
