We were founded in the summer of 2007 by Ken and Karen Dobson along with the help of Horse Trainer Jennifer Allen. Ken Dobson has had horses all his life, had a love for the outdoors and perserving the ole' way of living. Along with Ken, his wife Karen also appreciates the beauty of the horse and keeping life simple and happy.
Jennifer Allen has been a horse trainer for 15 yrs and around them all her life. She is a John Lyons certified trainer and won several barrell-racing competitions during the 90's. Her love of old fashioned country things bought life back to Shady Rest.
We are the type of farm that does the "'lil things" like fly spraying, blanketing in winter months, applying ointment, deworming, giving treats for a job well done.....all for FREE!!!!
Here owners can feel at ease when they drive out of the farm gate knowing their horse is in good hands. Hands that work the farm to make it better, hands that feed their horses, and hands that when you shake them we make a promise to give your horse the best care possible. Come experience the old fashoined way of life again. Bring a horse, bring a friend, we make sure that ALL FIT IN!!!!!!!
