Dear Stage Coach Stables:


I love Stagecoach Stables!  From the moment my mare stepped off the trailer you could see she was happy.  The farm is professionally managed yet I felt at ease and at home from the beginning.  Wonderful amenities and I know my mare will be cared for if I have to be out of town for an extended time.

Dear Stage Coach Stables:


I am one of your very satisfied boarders!
I have been in the horse world for sixty years. I have boarded my horses from coast to coast, east, west, north, south. I just wanted you to know what a fine job Shawn and Elizabeth do managing your stable and caring for all our horses. Good farm help is so hard to find and keep. I feel so blessed to have found your facility when I moved up here from Mississippi. Thank you for providing such a fine facility.

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,
