Monthly December Newsletter and Schedule

Welcome to TEE @ Mountain Meadows Stables!  Our December schedule is busy! Remember you can contact Gayle via text at 818-675-7507 with any questions! This newsletter will be posted on our website at so you can refer back to it at anytime!



We are still getting some concerns from some of the ranch horse owners that our people are simply driving too fast. Please be sure that once you hit the park area that you slow down to 5mph. Even if you are late! Cars can spook horses and we do not want any accidents. Thank you for your help! Please pass the word to anyone bringing your rider!



Let’s all stay safe! We will begin enforcing that all spectators join us at the bleachers even when their rider is tacking up. It’s a bit too congested in the tack area for safety. Even if you are just watching we ask that all those that come to the ranch wear closed toed shoes. Besides horses we have plenty of wildlife such as spiders, snakes, etc. Thanks for your help!
