My daughter, Siena, has practically grown up at Strain's Family Equestrian Center. She started lessons at age four and quickly found her passion. Five years later, we are now owners of a horse that resides at the Strain facility. This is a wholesome family-friendly environment that has provided my family with wonderful memories and opportunities over the years. They have a terrific teaching staff, summer camps, barn shows, holiday parties, horse care clinics, school vacation clinics and even adult clinics. With two outdoor rings, an indoor ring and lots of trails there is something here for everyone. But the best thing about SFEC is the people... this is like our extended family.
