Other Services at Rocky Hill Stables
The stable has a trainer on the premises that is available to assist boarders where needed. Laura DeAngelo, a 2005 graduate of JMU, rode and competed with the JMU riding team all four years of college, and worked summers riding young horses and working under a professional trainer. She has been riding and working horses for 20 years. Laura is now focusing on eventing her mare, Skye, where together they are learning the new discipline. She specializes in working with green horses, starting horses over jumps, and dealing with problem issues.
For a reasonable rate, the stable-owned, Featherlite, four-horse,slant load trailer is used to transport boarders’ horses to horse shows, clinics, trail rides, and back and forth from other farms. Several of our student boarders live close enough that they take their horses home for the summer and bring them back in the fall.
