Stage Coach Stables 

Dear Stage Coach Stables:


My daughter and I are new boarders at SCS and I just wanted you to know that we have been so impressed with the friendly and helpful atmosphere SCS has. Shawn has made us feel so comfortable and we feel great having her caring for our horse. She goes the extra mile and truly cares about our horse. We have boarded our horse for 12 years in different places in Iowa and we can truly say that SCS is top of our list. I just wanted you to know how happy we are and we trust our horse to the care of Shawn and Elizabeth. 
Thank you. 
Sincerely, 

Jana Weiss
