Who We Are:
Dan Hobyn Stables is located in Greenwood, IN. The stables is owned & managed by Dannette & Larry Morgan. DHS provides opportunities for instruction and competition in English riding, horse sports and horse management for children and adults. There is an emphasis on a full rounded knowledge of both riding and caring for horses, with safety being top of mind.
Lessons are focused on Eventing (dressage, cross country and show jumping), however flat/dressage only lessons are available. The stables is home base to the White River Valley Pony Club, which has been based at the barn since 1978. The barn mirrors its riding instruction, safety and horse management knowledge on the core values of the Unite States Pony Clubs.
Dan Hobyn Stables was established by Dannette Morgan in 1969. DHS is a 40 acre farm with ample galloping lanes, cross country jumps (starter level through training level), stadium jumps, small and large dressage arenas as well as an indoor arena with sand footing. There are 23 stalls, with two large grass turn out pastures, and two smaller dry turn out lots. Horses are fed hay 4 times per day and grained 2 times per day. The facility also has a large secure tack room with an observation area. There are also lockers available for rent located in front of each stall.
