Shannon Trails ~ Horse Boarding & Riding Facility
Shannon Trails Horse Boarding & Riding Facility Over 200 years old and still standing: the original farm house on our property, owned by the Merrill Family since the 1960’s and home to the Merrill Family to this day. Our boarding farm owner and manager live right on the property. Rainbow over Shannon Trails. Indoor Riding Arena Barn. Indoor Riding Arena. The scenery on our 100 acre horse boarding farm is unmatched! Here, a beautiful sunrise awaits the fortunate early bird. Shannon Trails Horse Boarding & Riding Facility.

Join us for a sleigh or wagon ride throughout our miles of trails that are groomed year round. Anastasia riding Archie for the first time after his near death experience of Intussusception. Nearly losing his life on several occasions, the exceptional 24-hour loving care of Shannon Trails' knowledgeable staff ultimately saved his life. Also must add that this boy gives kisses on the lips - what's not to love about him? Horses have 50 acres of pasture turn out. Manager Jonathan Merrill with Shire Draft Horse Rudy.

Some of our miles and miles of scenic private hourse riding trails - groomed year round, now with new footing. Our trails are wide enough to drive a truck through! We're even set up with cross country jumps too. Merrill Family with Rudy after winning Reserve Champion at the 2010 4-H Show hosted by Shannon Trails.
