We're proud to introduce you to our way of life!
Hobby Horse Arena is located in west central Illinois in the heart of farm country. Life is simple here. We work hard and play even harder. We feel so blessed to have so many terrific friends that share the love of horses with us.
Hobby Horse is a dream come true for us. We have worked hard to turn what used to be a wheat field into a fun family friendly environment. We welcome you to come visit us, view the horses and even rope a cow or two if you are so inclined. You should bring your own horses to ride though, as ours are usually occupied .
We have always dreamed of having a place to rope right in the back yard, so shortly after building the house and remodeling the 1917 dairy barn into what is now the home to our geldings, a 150 x 300 roping arena was built.( This past summer, we shortened the arena up so that it was less stress on the cattle and horses. We really like the shorter arena alot.) With the help of a few friends, it was constructed one weekend and the roping calves were bought.
Then in 2006, we decided to take the plunge and build our dream barn. We did research and visited alot of indoor arenas, making note of what we liked and what we didn't like. We combined it all and came up with an 80 x 200 indoor arena with a return alley and set up for roping cattle, a balcony which houses a heated office/announcer stand and a viewing area complete with the PICTURE WALL. Down below is another large heated room for viewing. We have so much fun sharing with all those who come join us.
In the spring of 2011, and we've just added a 50 x 50 heated shop and a storage shed for the trailers, ect. This is Stan's new hide out, so drop on by, no matter what the weather, there's always someone here to visit and share the news with....
Give us a call or just stop in, we always love to talk horses!
