Editorial review from Citysearch 10/16/2013

Really a bad experience with this stables with a judgmental owner (manager). I went a met with the owner and the stables looked good. The ""talk"" sounded good too. We agreed I would take lessons and from there get help finding and buying a horse that i would board there. The owner said the instructor would call. After not getting a call in a few days and contacting them again i was assured they would talk to the trainer and that I should expect a call. In the end i followed up 3 times for the call that never came.\r \r Finally, after a few weeks i went back to the stables and spoke with the owner directly. I asked if maybe my tattoos had caused them to take a dislike to me. He looked me straight in the eyes and assured me that they were not putting me off and that the instructor would definitely call me. Well, it's been 2 months now and of course, no call. I can't say it was the tattoos but i do know that i was only there for 5 minutes initially and that i didn't do anything to offend or give reason for him to dislike me. In fact, our conversation was pleasant and positive. I can only assume that judgment was passed based on a physical assessment and that I didn't meet their standards. Sounds pretty arrogant to me even though the owner implied it was the English riders that were arrogant. Bottom line, I would not wast my time. Obviously this is the kind of place that unfairly passes judgement and that sounds pretty darned unfriendly to me! more

Rocking B is a wonderful place to board 6/11/2012

Rocking B is a wonderful place to board your horse. The owners are friendly and knowledgeable and go out of their way to ensure the horses are well taken care of. I suspect the bad review they received from Horseman42 was because Horseman 42 was asked to leave the stable because they did not pay their board bills. Rocking B Stables is a great facility! more

Lovely boarding facility 8/26/2011

I've been at Rocking B for about six years. This is a very nice place to board your horse. Please take some of the negative comments with a grain of salt. I've owned and boarded horses for over 30 years and it never fails to amaze me how many so-called experts there are out in the horse business who love to sow the sour seeds of their own personal agenda. more

Great place to board your horse! 8/25/2011

Comments are directed at horseman42. Loading a horse into a trailer with a front end loader tractor. Think about it. How ridiculous does this sound unless the horse is dead. The owners are great horse people. They have horses and ride. They are very concerned about their boarders and their horses. Old and moldy hay --- hay doesn't stay around the stables long enough to get old and moldy. They only buy the current years hay and are very picky when they get it. I would recommend Rocking B Stables to anyone needing a place to board their horse. more

Rocking B Stables is SUPER! 8/25/2011

My comments are directed at horseman42 and hrselvr,.OK, enough of the ""Management-Bashing""! Do you people know what's involved with running a boarding stable? Lots of blood, sweat, tears & money. If you had / have a problem with the owners, be an adult and approach them respectfully and try to work it out. If you have / had any ideas on improving the establishment, bring it to their attention! The statement of loading a horse into a trailer with a front end loader tractor has got to be the most ridiculous thing in the world! Do you have any PROOF of this? Are you willing to share this proof? And by the way, what's your real name? My name is Cheryl Snyder, and my horse, goat & I have been very happy here over the years. My horse & I have been at Rocking B Stables for at least 6 years. My goat is only 2 1/2 years old & was born on their ranch. I always come to the owners if I have a concern and they have ALWAYS worked with me! The ranch is very affordable & if you check around, you'll see it's true. The boarders are very friendly & we help each other. All the horses are attended to properly. If you were not happy at Rocking B Stables, why did you board your horse(s) here in the first place? There's bound to be accidents & horses not liking their pen mates or ""neigh""bors at ANY facility. If I see something that doesn't look right I tell the ranch owners immediately and they investigate right away. I like the management at Rocking B Stables, and am very disgusted with the trash talk about them! Like I said previously, it takes a lot to run a horse boarding facility. If YOU owned a boarding facility, I'm certain you would appreciate helpful comments / suggestions instead of people trashing you! Now, if you'd like to leave your real name and comment on what I have written, feel free. Or just come on down to the ranch & ask for me, I'm the only Cheryl who boards there. Thank you. By the way, the Veterinarian sets his fees, NOT Rocking B Stables! If you cannot be there to hold your horse for the vet or farrier calls, you should pay a holding fee. I have done so, and appreciated the help! more

In response to Horseman42 8/25/2011

I used to board at RBS. I have always found the owners to be friendly and was never concerned about the care of my horse. I recently had a conversation with the owners and they expressed the fact that they had recently had a issue with a couple of boarders that left with out paying the balance owed to them. Makes me wonder if horseman42 is one of them or a friend of one of these individuals. I say check out the place for yourself and I promise you won't be disappointed. Deanna more

Bad managment for a nice facility 8/18/2011

Nice facility, poor excuse for management! The place itself could be really nice they do have nice trails,round pen, a walker and some nice stalls. But when it comes to taking care of the horses the owners need to go to horse care or animal care 101, ive witnessed horses not being fed properley owner not caring if the horses get fed the right amount of grain or round bales being old and moldy. On another occasion i wittnesed the owner trying to load a horse into a horse trailer with a frontend loader tractor (the horse was kicking the bucket) with the bucket of the tractor, and they have no concept of taking care of animals besides horses. So no this place is not safe for your horse. more

Excellent Stable 7/21/2011

My horse has never been happier!!! 12/21/2010

I am new to Rocking B Stables, but my horse Zulu and I love it here! Beautiful trails for riding, nice people, and state of the art amenities (large barn, tack rooms, lighted round pen, and lighted arena). The boarders are very friendly and welcoming and owners Bruce & Susan have been responsive and attentive to our needs. Even if you don't own a horse, I would recommend lessons and trail riding. Rocking B stables are clean and affordable. You never have to worry about your horse not getting enough fresh water because the whole place is fitted with auto waterers and your horse never goes without a round bale and regular feed. more

Great place to board your horse 4/29/2009

I have boarded my horse there for almost 3 years and the new owners are much more knowledgeable and caring than the previous owners. The facility is clean and well kept and all the horses are fat and happy. Pros: Caring owners, reasonable board rates, great trails more

poor horse boarding 9/11/2008

the new owners (since dec 07) have around 3 years combined experience with horses. they are more worried about raising the prices of your board and making overpriced and arrogant vet money then helping you out. they let horses in and the day they get in they go right in with other horses and a few months ago it caused a big strangles outbreak costing several boarders thousands of dollars in vet bills. these people know nothing about horses. the lady is even scared of her own horse and the man cant even ride his horse cause he throws him off all the time all the time ive been there ive only seen either of them on a horse maybe a combined 5 times. do you want to board your horse at a place where you know more about horses than the caretakers do? leave a comment on here if you want any more info ill be glad to help anyone out and make reccomendations to other more qualified boarding facilities Pros: deacent trails but they are dissapating as well Cons: no experience more

Rocking B Stables are the best! 7/29/2008
